Why Parasite Prevention is Essential for Dogs and Cats

Fleas, ticks, heartworms, and various intestinal parasites are a lifelong health hazard to dogs and cats alike. At Midtown Veterinary Practice, we offer an extensive inventory of parasite preventatives to protect your companion year after year. We recommend year-round protection because many parasites remain active throughout the year, even when the weather gets cooler.

Heartworm disease is a particular risk, as the clinical signs of infection take months to appear, and the disease itself can be deadly if it isn’t caught and treated quickly. Currently, treatment for heartworm disease is only available to dogs, and the process is time-consuming, expensive, and unlikely to reverse all the harmful effects inflicted by the infection.
