Podcast: Preventative Care - Fleas, Ticks, and Titers... Oh My!

It's that time of year - summer has arrived and we’re all scrambling to get our pets up-to-date on their flea/tick/heartworm preventatives. Not to mention the vaccinations, check-ups, and prescriptions for allergy meds. Before you get caught up in the chaos, take a few minutes to listen to our latest podcast. Dr. Patrick Mahaney will be talking about:

  • What to expect from fleas and ticks in 2016
  • What’s safe and what’s effective when it comes to flea and tick prevention
  • Saving money on pet meds: are online pharmacies the way to go?
  • Titers: what are they and are they the right move for your pet

 

Now, don’t you feel more prepared for that checkup? We’d wish you luck, but we don’t think you’ll need it.
