Pet Portals

Spring is here in full force and summer is just around the corner. I for one was glad to see the winter end as it was one of the strangest I have seen here in Wilmington. But with the warm weather we have to also be on the look out for the problems that our pets can encounter this time of the year. We all are more aware of heartworms when it is warmer because we see more mosquitoes while out and about. But heartworms are a year round issue and that is why we recommend all dogs and cats be on heartworm prevention all year long. But we do see more of a flea and tick problem starting this time of the year. There are several very good products on the market that do a safe and effective job of controlling these aggravating and sometimes deadly pests. There are even some new products this year that are easier than ever to use. Finally please realize that with the warmer weather we with our pets are outside more and interacting with Mother Nature frequently. Be on the watch for bee stings, fire ants, and snake bites not to mention cut pads and minor wounds that can occur in the woods and on trails. It is always a good idea to keep a pet emergency kit on hand. To learn more what you should have just give our clinic a call. Have happy and safe adventures.
