Preventive Services

A simple way you can help keep your pet healthy is by protecting him or her against parasites. Heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other internal and external parasites are much more than just pests; they can cause life-threatening conditions in your pet—and cause severe, potentially fatal, health problems for you and your family.

In the Quad Cities, prime heartworm/flea season is April through November. We strongly recommend that you use flea/tick and heartworm preventative for your dogs (along with an annual heartworm test) and flea/tick preventative for your cats during this time. Consult the chart below to see available preventative options.
