Unfortunately, every season is considered flea and tick season. Because of global warming, temperatures have been all over the place. Any warm days, fleas and ticks will thrive.
Fleas Fleas can be seen all year round. Here are a few facts on how fleas can stick around.
If your pet or house had fleas in the summer, and they were not properly treated, you’re going to have fleas during the winter months as well.
If your pet goes outdoors and comes in contact with squirrels, birds, or other wildlife, they can still get fleas year-round.
If you live in a building with multiple pets, such as an apartment complex, there is a greater chance your pet will get fleas.
If fleas become a problem in your home:
Clean all blankets and toys.
Vacuum all furniture and carpets. The vibration helps the fleas mature (don’t forget to clean the inside of the vacuum).
Make sure your treated pets get access to the whole house so the medication can work on eradicating all the fleas.
Ticks We typically say that five days of warmth means the start of parasite season, and five days of frost means the season is done. Although with temperature changes in the last years, the moment we have a warm day, the snow will melt and the ticks are ready and hungry. Tips for ticks on dogs:
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 506.857.4271. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
