It’s that time of year again when Mosquitos are at their worst. Since Mosquitos spread Heartworm, it is more important than ever to insure your family member is protected. The best approach is to prevent heartworm rather than treat it. The first step is to test for heartworm. If the test is positive we need to start treatment immediately. If the test is negative, we need to start Heartworm prevention immediately. For the lifecycle of the Heartworm, please watch this informative video.

Fleas are extremely bad this time of year – they can not only bother your pet but may also carry diseases that may affect humans. The Willamette Valley has the perfect temperate, humid, environment to produce large numbers of fleas. Because of this, we recommend prevention year round.
Tapeworm: Life cycle begins in the flea. It is important to make sure fleas are treated in order to minimize reinfection of the tapeworm. Indoor only pets are recommended deworming 1-2 times per year. Indoor/outdoor pets, especially pets that eat their prey, are to be dewormed for tape worms every 3 months. We offer topical and pill treatment options for cats as well as chewable and injectable options for dogs.
Ticks: Very common in our area. Cause of Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis, and much more. We have a 10 minute blood test that can determine if your pet has come into contact with an infected tick. (Ask the doctor about timing of test after tick exposure) We have several options for tick prevention including topicals, chewables, and collars that work!
Roundworm: Most common intestinal parasite. Often infect newborn puppies and kittens through their mother’s milk. Other modes of infection include ingestion of contaminated soil or eating prey with roundworms. Pets who live with children, or spend a lot of time outdoors, should be treated often as roundworms can and do pass on to humans. (Humans are unable to see the presence of roundworm eggs in stool with the naked eye.)

Stages of Roundworm Life Cycle:

  • Swallowed eggs first hatch in the intestine.
  • The larvae then move through the bloodstream to the lungs.
  • After maturing, the roundworms leave the lungs and return to the stomach and small intestine.
  • There they lay eggs.
  • The cycle continues. Some eggs are excreted through the feces. Other eggs hatch and return to the lungs.
