Regular Heartworm and Flea preventatives a must – Beach Park Animal Clinic, veterinary hospital in Tampa, FL 33609

By September 19, 2013Blog, Uncategorized

At Beach Park Animal Clinic, a veterinary hospital in Tampa, FL, we believe it is extremely important to give your dogs monthly heartworm and flea preventatives.  Along with preventing heartworms, products like Heartgard and Sentinel, also are effective intestinal parasite preventatives.  Our veterinarians have been seeing an increase of these intestinal parasites over the past year.  If there are children in the household, it is even more important because these parasites can be transmitted to humans.

In a warm weather climate, such as Tampa, parasites thrive.  We don’t get the harsh winters that can sometimes break a parasite’s life cycle making it important to use these preventatives year round.  Our veterinary clinic stocks many different brands of heartworm and flea preventatives and our veterinary staff is always eager to advise you as to which ones will be best suited for your pets.
