Dougherty Veterinary Clinic 2020 Tick, Flea and Heartworm Prevention
We now recommend year-round prevention for ticks, fleas, intestinal parasites and heartworm. We have seen a large increase in the number of dogs infected with heartworm due to changing climate (warmer, shorter winters), an influx of dogs from Southern States (high heartworm areas) and an increase in travel habits of owners with their pets. Also, whenever the temperature rises above 36 degrees F, ticks can become active. Finally, dog parks, groomers, training classes and kennels are several common places that can potentially infect your dog with fleas and intestinal parasites. You can call our office at 218-722-3963 for more information or go to petsandparasites.org or heartwormsociety.org.
