Pet Flea and Tick Preventatives in Cumberland, RI

Citrus Heights has fleas, ticks, and heartworm, so you must make sure your pet is protected. Diamond Hill Animal Clinic can assist you in preventing problems and diseases brought on by fleas, ticks, and heartworm, despite the fact that these parasites can pose a serious threat to the health of your pet.

With the right treatment and care, parasites and the diseases they transmit can both be avoided. Fleas and ticks can carry diseases and negatively impact your pet’s health in addition to causing irritation in your pet. Heartworm is a harmful parasite that can be fatal that resides in the hearts of dogs and cats and harms the heart muscle.

Fleas are tiny, leaping insects that feed on animal blood. They frequently cause allergic dermatitis “extreme itching” in pets and can spread harmful infections.

Ticks are external parasites that survive by sucking blood from other animals. They are the primary means by which illnesses like Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis/anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever move from one animal to another.

Dogs and cats can harbor the parasite heartworm in their hearts. The worm is spread from one infected animal to another by mosquitoes. A dog’s heart may contain several hundred worms, and parasite infection causes serious harm and may even be deadly.
