Tick Prevention

Tick Prevention

Ticks are becoming more and more prevalent throughout North America, and they’re now being found in areas where people and pets didn’t previously encounter them. These external parasites aren’t just a nuisance, either. They can cause serious—and sometimes deadly—diseases, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and tick paralysis. Contact Huron East Animal Hospital immediately if your pet starts coughing, is exhibiting signs of weakness and/or joint pain, has trouble breathing, has a fever, or experiences loss of appetite, weight, energy, or coordination.

You can help keep ticks off your pet by keeping them on a tick preventive. Even indoor-only pets are at risk because ticks can hitch a ride inside on your clothing or shoes. Tick preventives are safe and effective at controlling ticks and the many diseases they carry. Call Huron East Animal Hospital to get your pet protected today!

If you find a tick on your dog or cat, even if he or she is already on a preventive, don’t panic! Some preventives don’t actually kill ticks until after they’ve come in contact with your pet. Ticks can also hide under your pet’s fur, so as an added measure of protection, we recommend checking for ticks every time your pet comes in from outside. And don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

You want your pet to enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. Let the wellness and preventative services at Huron East Animal Hospital help you achieve that goal!

I brought my rabbit Wanda to Huron East Animal Hospital for an emergency situation. All the staff were friendly, helpful and concerned about Wanda's situation. They were able to book Wanda in quickly for an emergency appointment.Wanda was treated with the utmost care and expertise you could hope... for. They asked many questions, examined Wanda and came up with a treatment plan, giving me options and pricing, so there was no surprise at the end. The prices for this emergency situation were very reasonable.Dr. Johnson answered all my questions and quelled my concerns, with genuine care for Wanda's health and professional advise. Dr. Johnson even drew me a detailed diagram to help explain the situation. Beyond me being put at ease by the entire staff at Huron East Animal Hospital, Wanda was completely calm while being handled the staff and Dr. Johnson. I think Wanda enjoyed her trip to the vet! The clinic even called me a couple of days later to check and see if Wanda's health was improving, which I thought was such a professional courtesy.I really couldn't have asked for more while going through a rough situation with Wanda. If you are looking for a great team to help your pet with ongoing and emergency care, then Huron East Animal Hospital should be your first stop.read more
