Our tick prevention methods can ensure quality protection for your pet.
Pet parents everywhere want to look out for their pet’s best interests. While we do well to look at the quality of our pet’s food, find them a safe place to sleep, and make sure they are properly socialized with other animals and people, their medical care is equally important. Caring for your pet doesn’t just mean taking them to the veterinarian when they are sick, it can also mean taking them to the veterinarian to prevent sicknesses from happening! If you have a pet in the Burlington, North Carolina area, our team here at Plaza Veterinary Hospital would like to offer you the best in tick prevention methods.
Ticks are hazardous pests to pets and people alike because they can transmit diseases easily. While you might be able to check yourself or your children for ticks after a day outside, pets do not do this regularly. Instead of worrying about constantly checking your pet for ticks, there are some wonderful tick prevention methods out there for dogs and cats that will protect them from ever being bitten or harmed by ticks.
At our hospital, we can discuss with you the options when it comes to tick prevention and your pet. Some pets do best with an edible medication that is given monthly to prevent ticks from latching on. When bitten, the ticks perish while your pet remains safe. There are also topical solutions that repel ticks and provide a similar protection to the edible medication. Our veterinary team would be happy to discuss the best options for your comfort and ability to ensure that your pet has proper tick prevention this year.
