The world of prevention products continues to grow more confusing and overwhelming. No one wants your precious pets to contract heartworms, or to be infested with fleas. But with so many products out there to choose from, which ones should you choose to protect your pet? We are here to help you decide! Here is a listing of the products we carry and recommend for your pets.
Revolution Plus – We recommend keeping every cat on Revolution Plus monthly, year-round. Revolution Plus is a topical product you apply to the back of your cat’s neck. Each month, this one product will protect your cat from: heartworms, hookworms, roundworms, fleas, ticks, and ear mites! With so much protection in one product, you can see why we love to recommend Revolution Plus!
For your beloved canines, we have several different options for you:
The Coverage Plan
Interceptor Plus and Credelio – The Coverage Plan is for the owner who wants the broadest protection available. With this package, you would give your dog 2 pills every month (1 Interceptor Plus tablet, and 1 Credelio tablet). Interceptor Plus will protect your dog from 5 parasites: 1. heartworms, 2. hookworms, 3. roundworms, 4. whipworms, and 5. tapeworms. The Credelio tablet adds protection from 6. fleas, and 7. ticks. Talk about maximum protection! With this plan you can rest assured you’ve given your dog “360 degree protection”.
The Convenience Plan
Simparica Trio – This plan is for the owner who wants the convenience of only giving their dog 1 pill a month, but still wants as much protection as you can get with that 1 pill. With Simparica Trio, you just give one monthly pill for protection against heartworms, hookworms, roundworms, fleas, and ticks. This product is not labeled to provide protection against whipworms or tapeworms, but we can talk to you about minimizing those risks, and how to monitor your pet.
The Compliance Plan
ProHeart and Seresto – We know that there are a lot of you out there who want the best for your dog, but you also need a plan that is going to be E-A-S-Y! We have a plan for you, too. ProHeart is an injectable heartworm prevention we give at the hospital for either 6 or 12 months of heartworm protection. Seresto is a long-acting flea and tick collar that we can dispense, apply for you and send you reminders when it is due to be changed! If you will commit to bringing your dog in to the hospital every 6 months, we will take care of the rest. No need to do anything at all at home. This plan is not labeled for all the intestinal worm protection of the other plans, but we will talk to you about how to minimize risk and help you rest assured that your dog is protected from heartworms, fleas, and ticks, year-round.
