Parasite Prevention and
It’s spring again, but unfortunately, that means those dreaded fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes have returned. Aside from being pesky, these insects can cause a number of health problems for your pet if not destroyed, including:
- Allergies (fleas)
- Lyme disease (ticks)
- Heartworm disease (mosquitoes)
The good news is that you can protect your pet with preventative products, many of which are available here at our clinic.
Another potential spring danger to keep in mind is the canine influenza outbreak in the Illinois area. To date, over 1,000 dogs have been affected in Chicagoland, which isn’t very far from the Ohio stateline. Avon Lake Animal Clinic recommends that you vaccinate your pet for canine influenza to protect them from this potentially deadly virus.
