April is Flea, Tick and Heartworm Prevention Month!

Is your pet protected from fleas and ticks? Fleas and ticks are more than just a nuisance. They can harbor diseases and other parasites. They can also cause extreme pruritus and skin infections. Therefore we recommend using flea and tick prevention all year long.
