Easy Flea, Tick, and Heartworm Solutions

We recommend several safe, easy-to-administer methods that can help keep your pet protected month after month. Our pharmacy stocks a number of topical solutions that kill fleas within 24 hours and keep them away for extended periods. If ticks are a problem, a topical treatment and preventative is usually the solution.

In addition, we also provide prescription-strength oral medications. Some treatments in tablet form will kill 100% of fleas in 24 hours. These do not prevent fleas, but will start killing fleas immediately to bring relief and prevent infestation. Others can start killing fleas in as little as 30 minutes, removing adult fleas before they can lay eggs. Stronger formulas are for dogs and puppies 14 weeks of age and older and last for one month.

If your pet doesn’t have any fleas yet, then consider using a simple parasite preventative. We offer monthly treatments in pill form, combined with heartworm preventive. These can effectively keeps flea eggs from hatching in the first place, all while ensuring your pet is safe from heartworms too.

Your pet’s wellness exam will cover any issues he or she may be having with fleas, ticks, and other parasites. Our veterinarians will make treatment and prevention recommendations that are most appropriate for your pet and his or her unique environment.
