Flea and Tick Prevention
Fleas, ticks, and intestinal parasites (ex: roundworms, hookworms, etc.) are year-round hazards for dogs and cats. Fleas, especially, are prevalent throughout the U.S. and prefer warm, humid conditions. Therefore flea infestations are typically worse during the summer and early fall. Increased exposure to the outdoors during the warmer months make fleas and other parasites more of a concern during summer. Be sure to keep pets up-to-date on fecal parasite testing and continue flea, tick, and parasite prevention during the summer months. Don’t forget about continuing heartworm preventive medications either! Heartworm disease is carried by mosquitoes, which are mostly active from the spring through the fall. And remember, NEVER use a product labeled for dogs on a cat!

Have been taking my cats to RCVH for years. The Vets and office staff have always been great. My current Vet Dr. Brickman is exceptional: she took over from my previous Vet who moved away. She is very patient and listens to my concerns regarding my elderly male cat. She is a real professional.
