Year Round Preventatives

According to the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC), the American Heartworm Society, the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and world veterinary health leaders, all dogs and cats need parasite prevention year round to protect their health and the health of their families. Parasites, like fleas and ticks, carry dangerous and sometimes fatal diseases that affect pets and people. Additionally, intestinal worms in animals and people lead to risks ranging from no symptoms at all to blindness, vomiting, diarrhea, or event death. Mosquito transmitted heartworms also pose an extreme risk to dogs and cats with as few as one worm capable of killing a pet. Concerning are recent studies which show a 22 – 24% spike in positive heartworm cases - with some of these cases in dogs being refractory to treatments. For cats, there is not a cure that exists for heartworm once they are infected. The good news is that most parasites are nearly 100% preventable with monthly parasite preventative medications that are safe, and easy to administer. 

 

Many products on the market look alike, and some "over the counter" products boasts protection claims yet not all products are equal, and some pose safety risks or incomplete protection. East Lake endorses Sentinel Spectrum for dogs and Revolution Plus for cats for the safest broadest spectrum of protection. Other products may also be supported by your East Lake doctor based on lifestyle and risk factors. For more information, consult your East Lake doctor.

 

Also, preventative medications purchased at East Lake are competitively priced coupled with pharmaceutical maker rebates which make prices lower than on-line sources.
