Pet Preventative Medicine
The thought of your pet being infested with parasites is unsettling, but it’s also a medical issue that can have severe consequences if not dealt with or prevented properly. Parasites can cause various health problems in our pets, who can be particularly vulnerable to certain parasites depending on their age, location, and other factors.
At Shelby Street Animal Clinic, we stress the importance of parasite prevention. You can successfully protect your pet by taking preventative measures. However, pets that are not protected frequently develop parasites, causing severe problems for them and their owners.
The cost of prevention is negligible compared to the cost of treatment, which can be costly and stressful for your pet. Parasites such as heartworm can be fatal, so parasite prevention is critical.
