Are your Pets Protected?

The effect of parasites on your pet can range from bothersome to fatal, so it’s best to take preventive measures that stop parasites before they infest or infect your pet. At All Creatures Great and Small, we know that parasites are relatively easy to prevent, yet once they take hold, they are very difficult to get rid of. That’s why we offer the very best in:

Flea Control and Prevention

Fleas cause itching in pets, but even worse, they carry a number of harmful diseases. We’ll screen for them during your pet’s annual wellness exam, and if we find them, we’ll prescribe potent medications to eliminate them from your pet and home.

Tick Control and Prevention

Ticks carry Lyme Disease, a potentially debilitating disease that affects both pets and humans. They also carry other dangerous diseases such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever—so for every pet that ventures outdoors, we recommend anti-tick preventive measures such vaccines, collars or oral medications.

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm is a potentially fatal disease that can affect both dogs and cats.  Heartworms can grow to be as long as a foot while they reside in the animal host’s heart, lungs or circulatory system. Prevention is critical and can be accomplished with regular blood testing and effective heartworm prevention medications.
