The team at Circle of Life Animal Hospital is committed to keeping our clients informed and educated about all your pet care needs.
The temperature might decrease in the fall, but the flea and tick population do not. We recommend keeping your pet on a parasite preventive all year-long to protect them from the dangers fleas and ticks present. Ticks can cause Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and tick paralysis; and fleas can cause allergy dermatitis and anemia.
Winter is the time of year when people, as well as their pets, become less active due to the holidays and the shorter days and longer nights. But there are things you can do with your pet to help you both stay active.
Pollen, mold, dust, fleas, food and other things can cause allergies in animals; and our pets can have allergies that crop up seasonally or all year long. In either situation, we can help your pet find relief. We treat our patients with a two-phase approach: the treatment phase and the maintenance phase. We’ll work with you to find the best treatment for your pet. If your pet suffers from chronic allergies, contact us to schedule an exam.
During the hot spring and summer months, we see many heatstroke cases at Circle of Life Animal Hospital and we want pet owners to be aware of the best ways to prevent this potentially devastating condition!
