Fleas, Ticks, Heartworm, Roundworms, Tapeworms and many other parasites are prevalent in the United States and it is important to understand the potential risks these parasites represent. Prevention through the use of products such as Trifexis, Sentinel, Nexgard, Heartgard, Advantage, or Revolution are essential. However it is often confusing which is the best choice for your pet. Please feel free to discuss this important topic with us during your next exam or visit the Companion Animal Parasite Council for more information.
