- French Heartworms
Why do indoor and outdoor pets need protection?
Even if your cat spends the majority of their time indoors, parasites can still find their way into your home by hitching a ride on another pet, or by sneakily making their way in through openings like windows or doors. Internal and external parasites also carry a range of illnesses that can be harmful to both you and your cat/dog. For example, ticks carry Lyme disease and heartworms cause heartworm disease. Parasites don't have an off-season, though the risk of infection can heighten depending on your dog or cat's overall health, lifestyle, or environment. Setting up parasite protection will provide you with peace of mind and your dog or cat with the preventives they need. To discuss the best preventives for your pet, please contact us at 709-256-3891.
