Pet Flea, Tick, and Heartworm Control

Preventative Measures for Pet Health

Preventing flea, tick, and heartworm infestations is essential for maintaining your pet’s health and well-being. Fleas and ticks can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, while heartworms can cause serious and potentially fatal heart and lung disease in dogs and cats. By implementing a preventative care plan for your pet, you can minimize their risk of exposure to these parasites and keep them healthy and happy.

Pet Flea, Tick, and Heartworm Control

At the Animal Hospital of Sussex County, we offer a range of preventative measures to protect your pet from fleas, ticks, and heartworms, including:

Flea and Tick Prevention: Our veterinarians can recommend and prescribe flea and tick preventatives that are safe and effective for your pet. These medications come in various forms, including topical treatments, oral medications, and collars, and provide long-lasting protection against fleas, ticks, and other parasites.

Heartworm Prevention: We also offer heartworm preventatives to protect your pet from heartworm disease. These medications are typically administered monthly and work by killing heartworm larvae before they can mature into adult worms. By keeping your pet on a regular heartworm prevention regimen, you can ensure that they remain free from this potentially life-threatening parasite.

The Importance of Year-Round Protection

While flea, tick, and heartworm prevention are especially important during the warmer months when parasites are most active, it’s essential to maintain year-round protection for your pet. Fleas and ticks can survive in indoor environments year-round, and heartworm disease can be transmitted by mosquitoes even in colder climates. By staying vigilant and administering preventative medications regularly, you can keep your pet safe from parasites all year long.
