Monthly Maintenance Pet Tips From Fidelco!
Heartworm preventative – it’s VERY easy to administer with a tasty, chewable pill. Heartworms are extremely serious and potentially fatal, and treatment can be very, very expensive.
Monthly Flea and tick preventative – Connecticut is considered ground zero for Lyme Disease and most of New England is endemic. Tick-borne illness can cause lifelong problems and can be fatal, too – and it’s also preventable.
And…as the saying goes…”if you see something, say something” to your Veterinarian. A small lump or bump, or discoloration of the skin, inside the mouth or even inside the ears can be a signal of a growing problem.
