Q: Is your pet at risk for any of the following:
A) Fleas
B) Ticks
C) Worms
D) All of the above
A: All of the above (and they ALL can be tough to spot!)
Schedule your pet’s annual checkup today to be sure
your pet is healthy!
Is your dog very tired? Is your cat eating less than usual? These seemingly
minor changes may mean your pet has a flea allergy, an internal parasite
infection, or a tick-related disease.
Let’s talk about fleas first. The majority of pets don’t have fleas—but many
have been bitten because fleas are everywhere! Yes, fleas live outdoors but
they can live indoors too – even in really clean homes – year-round in any
climate. Fleas will gladly hitch a ride on your pet into your house. And all it
allergy. Pets may scratch their sides, neck or even lick their paws until they’re
red and painful. What pet wants to move around or eat when feeling this
Internal parasites (such as worms) can infect your pet in a number of ways.
Sometimes, it’s hard to know if your pet has them. But left untreated, worms
can be dangerous to your pet’s internal organs. They can even cause your pet
to lose blood.
Ticks are tricky. Even when you check your pet for ticks they can be tough to
find because they’re small and hide well in dark fur. But it’s crucial to find ticks
and remove them quickly. Why? Some ticks carry bacteria that cause disease
(such as Lyme disease, but there are many others). And all you need is one
undetected tick bite for your pet to become infected. They can become sick
and develop kidney problems. At times, these diseases can be fatal.
Ugh! Is there any good news?
We’re experts when it comes to flea allergies, tick and internal parasite checks.
Even if your pet is on regular monthly preventive, it is still important for us to
make sure your pet is healthy.
Make an appointment for your pet’s annual checkup today – we’ll give them a
thorough physical exam from nose to tail. Let’s also confirm the prevention
you’re using is right for your pet!

For your convenience, we now offer City of Richmond pet licenses.  The cost is 10 dollars per license and a current rabies certificate is required.  The proceeds go to the City of Richmond Animal Care and Control for the care of homeless animals.  Download & Print Form
