Let’s protect your pet together.

Fleas, ticks, and heartworm are present in Southern California, and it’s vital to protect your pet. While fleas, ticks, and heartworm can be a serious threat to your pet’s health, Huntington Beach Pet Hospital can help you avert issues and diseases caused by these parasites.

Every examination includes a specific recommendation for which product is best suited for your pet’s environmental exposure. Our hospital carries Trifexis, Comfortis, Heartgard Plus, Nexgard, Revolution, Cheristin, and Capstar. With the exponential growth in heartworm cases diagnosed in the California area, as well as, the increasing number of tick-transmitted diseases being identified in our State, monthly parasite preventatives are critical for your pet’s health.

Fleas are small, jumping insects that live off of the blood of animals. They can carry dangerous diseases and will often cause allergic dermatitis ”severe itching” in pets.

Ticks are external parasites that live off of the bodily fluids of animals. They can carry diseases from one animal to another and are the main cause of the spread of diseases such as Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis/anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

Heartworm is a parasite that can live in the heart of dogs and cats. Mosquitoes carry the worm from one infected animal to another. Several hundred worms can live in the heart of a dog and infection from the parasite causes significant damage and can be fatal.

When it comes to your pet’s health, prevention is key.
