Ever heard of cat scratch fever?
Parasites are on the rise!
This website shows different maps with prevalence of parasites (including diseases such as Lyme disease, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma and Heartworms). Rockbridge County has already noted over 12% positive for 2018!!
Don't forget, many of these diseases can be prevented. We recommend keeping your pet on flea and tick prevention all year (even in the winter months).
The number of ticks we've seen increases week by week!
Protect your pet with Bravecto (3 month oral flea and tick preventative), now at the low price of $55!
(Available rebates for buying 2 or more doses make this product very affordable- even compared to online pharmacies!!)
