For Fleas and Ticks we recommend Frontline Gold!

Frontline Gold is safe for dogs and cats as young as 8 weeks old! You can even use it on pregnant or lactating pets. You apply it to the skin on your pets back once every 30 days.

Ticks

Ticks are very common in and around the Spokane area. We tend to see them in the warmer months (usually April-Oct). Ticks also feed on your pet's blood. However, unlike fleas, they actually attach onto your pet's skin. Ticks can transmit several infectious agents, and can lead to certain neurologic diseases. If your pet goes anywhere outside where there is brush, tall grass, or trees it should be protected from ticks. If your pet shows a lameness, loss of appetite, or lethargy call us for an appointment. These signs could indicate a tick related disease.

Fleas

Fortunately, in Spokane, we do not have a lot of fleas. However, we do see fleas from time to time. Fleas feed on your pet's blood. In this way, fleas can cause discomfort for your pet, as well as, lead to anemia and transmit tapeworms and other infectious agents. In addition, fleas are very difficult to remove from your house. If your pet is scratching or chewing, or if you see dark bugs in their hair, schedule an appointment so that the veterinarian can determine if your pet has fleas and help you formulate a plan to get rid of them.
