Mosquitos, fleas, and ticks, oh my! Besides being annoying and just plain gross, these little critters can pose some serious risks to our pets. Many parasites carry diseases that can sicken or even kill pets, and, in some instances, human members of the family can also be affected.
Thanks to our temperate winters here in the Houston area, these troublesome pests are never far from our minds, or our pets’ bodies, making year-round parasite prevention of the utmost importance. Your team at Dickinson Animal Hospital is committed to helping you find the right parasite prevention products to meet your pet’s needs all year long.
Prevention is the single most important step you can take in protecting your pet from parasites. During your pet’s wellness exam, your veterinarian will work with you to determine the correct parasite prevention protocol based on your pet’s health, lifestyle, and other factors.
