A simple way to help keep your pet healthy is by protecting them against parasites. Heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other parasites are much more than just pests; they can cause life-threatening conditions in your pet—as well as severe, potentially fatal, health problems for you and your family.
In the Quad Cities, prime flea season is April through November. We strongly recommend that you use flea/tick preventative for your dogs and cats during this time. Heartworm preventative for dogs should be given year-round (along with an annual heartworm test). Consult the chart below to see available preventative options.
