Flea and tick prevention is an important service for dogs who love the great outdoors. A dog’s fur provides the ideal environment for fleas and ticks to thrive and feed. Protecting your dogs from flea and ticks can prevent some of the illnesses and allergic reactions that these parasites can carry, including Lyme disease and rocky mountain spotted fever.
Adult fleas can be observed on your dog or in your environment. Fleas also leave behind waste products that look like black flakes next to your dog’s skin. Ticks are larger than fleas usually and can easily be seen on your dog when you part their hair.
How do you prevent fleas & ticks in dogs?
Monthly flea and tick preventative medication is available from your veterinarian’s office.
What are the treatment options for ticks in dogs?
If your dog has a tick it should immediately be removed. Your dog should then have a blood test to check for tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease. Prevention is the best method for ticks. Avoid tall grass and bushes, check your dog over daily to find and remove any ticks and use a monthly parasite preventive medication that will kill ticks.
Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.
The following changes are effective as of Tuesday, March 24, 2020:
1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 506.857.4271. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.
2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.
3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 9:00 - 5:00 pm.
4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. We are limiting pet food purchases to 2 bags/cases per order. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.
5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.
Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.
Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
