Heartworm, fleas and ticks

Just because we’ve had some cold days doesn’t mean it’s time to stop giving heartworm, flea and tick preventatives.

It only takes a little bit of warmth to send the mosquitos buzzing back and to allow the flea life cycle to start up again.
In warm, humid climates like Houston, these parasites can persist all year round. When you let your guard down, you let the enemy in, and provide them with a feline and canine buffet to eat and thrive upon.
