Tis the Season for Fleas…….
Many people think of fleas as a spring and summer problem. However, the peak time for flea infestations is September, October, and November. Due to the lower temperatures and the possibility of an owner missing the administration of flea preventative, veterinarians see the most flea infested pets during these months.
Symptoms of a flea-infested animal can vary. If your pet is not allergic to flea bites then they may not exhibit any symptoms until the infestation is severe. On the other hand, if your pet is allergic to flea bites then they will be very itchy and biting mostly at their back end near the base of their tail. Most pets with fleas will have a black pepper substance in their hair, or you may see live fleas when parting the hair.
The best action for flea control is prevention. Berwick Animal Clinic can provide many different and effective flea products to prevent their infestations. If your pets already have fleas, then our staff can help you easily treat, prevent, and rid your household of these annoying parasites.
We offer both preventative care services (much like your visits to the dentist), along with dental x-rays and tooth extractions. Good oral hygiene is the best thing that you can do to ensure a longer life, with less health concerns, for your pet. Call us to schedule a dental exam or service.x
Laboratory services are a vital part of the diagnostic process when it comes to veterinarian care. This is because in many cases it is not possible to be able to give a firm diagnosis without undertaking additional tests to confirm the root of the problem. If you have any questions or concerns your vet will be happy to speak to you.x
This is the most effective way to assist in having your companion returned if they go missing. The microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades. When scanned, it provides information that assists in reuniting you with your furry friend!x
