Here at Uniontown Veterinary Clinic, pet preventative care is just one of the many types of services that our veterinarian and team is able to offer. Whether your pet is in need of a flea, tick, and parasite prevention plan or needs up-to-date vaccines, our experienced and skilled team is here to help.
There are many misconceptions out there when it comes to fleas, ticks, and heartworms in pets. Unfortunately, some pet owners don't realize just how much they could be putting their pets at risk by not having the appropriate preventative care in place. For example, a small flea problems can quickly turn into a full-fledged flea infestation that takes over your entire home and makes your pet miserable. As fleas infest your pet, he or she will scratch the affected areas and could even end up with skin infections and lost patches of fur as a result.
Ticks are another danger to your pet's health, as tick bites can be difficult to spot. Unfortunately, ticks are also known to carry Lyme Disease, which can be fatal in pets. And of course, heartworm can be downright fatal when not caught and treated. This is why it's so important to make sure your pet has a preventative care plan in place with a trusted Hartville veterinarian.
Fortunately, our veterinarian in Uniontown specializes in pet preventative care, offering a wide range of services to protect your pet's health and wellness. For starters, we offer treatments and preventative medicines for fleas, ticks, and heartworms. Simply schedule an appointment with our veterinary team and we'd be happy to make a recommendation on the right treatment and prevention plan for your pet's specific needs. Please keep in mind that we also highly recommend these preventatives even for indoor pets (such as cats), as it's important to make sure your pet is protected if he or she were ever to get outside of the house. Furthermore, if you have both indoor and outdoor pets, then you'll want to make sure that they're all properly protected.
In addition to flea, tick, and heartworm prevention, we also offer pet vaccines here in our clinic. From rabies vaccines to species-specific vaccinations such as bordetella and feline leukemia, we can determine the best vaccination schedule for your pet based on its needs and risk factors. From there, we can easily and quickly administer any necessary vaccines during a routine appointment or wellness exam in our office.
As you can see, pet preventative care is extremely important to protecting your pet's health.
