Preventing disease and illness is always better for our animals and less expensive than treating. Florida has many parasites that can infect our pets. Many of these are easily prevented.
If there’s one piece of advice we hope all pet owners take to heart, it’s the importance of diligent heartworm prevention. Here in Florida, heartworms are a very real danger, since they can infect both dogs and cats, and are transmitted primarily by mosquitos (which we all know are very common here, year round). And, because heartworm infection can be deadly as well as difficult and expensive to treat, Turkey Creek Vets believes prevention is absolutely key to the long-term health and wellness of your pet.
We can help you understand the difference between various heartworm preventive brands on the market – many of which also offer protection against intestinal worms and/or fleas and ticks. Then, we can help you choose the preventive that best fits the needs of you, your pet, and your family.
Animal Wellness Center can also help you save time and money by allowing you to order your treatments through our exclusive online pharmacy that offers a reminder service and convenient home delivery.
