Fleas and ticks driving your dog (and you) crazy? Do you like Frontline but don't like the thought of applying a topical to your dog? Does your dog swim and you are afraid the topical treatments aren't working as well? Try NexGard from Merial (the maker's of Frontline)! The once monthly flavor chew that helps keep your dog protected from the fleas and ticks that drive everyone itchy!
Lyme and Ehrlichia are tick borne diseases that your dog could be infected with and not be showing any symptoms. Left undetected and untreated, your dog could become very sick, very quickly. We now offer in house tests to detect both types of disease. Tests are easily performed with a small blood sample that can be taken with very little discomfort by our veterinarians or our licensed veterinary technician. Results are received in less than 15 minutes! If you would like to have your dog tested, please call our office to make an appointment. We have already seen several cases this summer and with tick season still in full swing its a great time to test your dog(s)!
