Given that we live in Florida, we know for a fact your pet needs flea, tick, and heartworm prevention year-round. These parasites are more than just annoying: fleas and ticks carry disease, can trigger allergies and hotspots, and seriously threaten your pet’s health. Spread by mosquitos, heartworm can infect dogs and cats and is potentially deadly. While there is treatment for dogs, it can be expensive and hard on your pet. Turkey Creek Animal Hospital believes parasite prevention is absolutely key to the long-term health and wellness of your pet.
But be careful: not all preventives are created equal. Over-the-counter/supermarket brands can be dangerous or fatal to smaller dogs and cats and some oral treatments are less effective than topical or “on-the-spot” treatments. Also, some prescription preventives may not be right for households with both dogs and cats.
Preventatives we offer include:
- Selarid (compare to Revolution)
- Bravecto Plus
- Simparica Trio
- Sentinel Spectrum
- Bravecto (3 month and 1 month)
- Proheart 12
We’ll help you select the right treatment for your pet and your household and explain tips and tricks on how to get the best-possible results. We’ll also help you save time and money by allowing you to order your treatments through our exclusive online pharmacy that offers a reminder service and convenient home delivery.
