As the springtime weather rolls in, it brings with it an emergence in outdoor activities with your pets in Uniontown. Unfortunately this time of year also sees a reoccurrence of parasites including heartworm, fleas, and ticks. Thankfully here at Uniontown Veterinary Clinic we provide comprehensive pet preventative care and parasite prevention. Discover the facts about parasite protection for your pet this spring season.
As your Uniontown veterinarian we begin pet preventative care visits with a comprehensive pet exam. This gives your vet the information needed to determine what preventative care measures are needed. This typically includes pet vaccines and parasite prevention treatments based on your pet’s lifestyle and home environment.
If you aren’t sure if your dog or cat needs parasite prevention we can assist you. Every pet has unique parasite prevention needs, and we will work with your pet to determine the best route of care. However, even pets that are indoor animals are at risk for parasites including heartworms, fleas, and ticks thanks to indoor pests, such as mice or insects. Therefore we recommend parasite prevention for all pets in Uniontown and Hartville.
Some of the top brands of pest prevention for heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other parasites include Frontline, Advantix, Novartis, PetArmor, Heartgard, and Flea Away. However, every pet responds differently to various brands of parasite prevention. Speak with your pet’s Hartville veterinarian to find the best brand for your pet’s particular pest control needs.
As a leading veterinarian in Uniontown we understand the vital importance of parasite prevention and pet care. In addition to providing preventative products, we provide care for patients in Hartville, Green, Ellet, and other communities in Springfield Township. Contact your veterinarian in Uniontown to schedule parasite prevention and pet preventive care. We are currently offering a free pet consultation for our new patients. Do you have any questions about what type of parasite prevention is best for your pet?
