Parasite Detection, Treatment and Prevention

Keeping pets well with preventive care is one of the cornerstones of our practice. A routine wellness schedule plays a large role in prevention, but exams and vaccines are not the only ways to prevent disease. Parasites, though small, can wreak havoc on your pet’s health and create problems that are costly to treat. Our veterinarians always stress the need for parasite preventatives–oral and topical medications that deter fleas, ticks, heartworms, roundworms, and other parasites.

Due to the mild climate here in Ocala, we recommend keeping your cat or dog on parasite prevention all year-round for maximum protection. During every wellness visit, your veterinarian will ask if your pet is current on their parasite preventatives. If you have any questions about the preventatives we offer or need to schedule a wellness visit, give us a call at 352-867-5553.

Book an appointment:

To optimize our efficiency and reduce client waiting times, we prefer to operate primarily by appointments. Drop-off appointments may be requested by the pet owner to maximize his/her time or suggested by our staff if all appointments are filled for the day and the pet owner is wanting his animal evaluated or treated the same day.
