Is your dog protected?

Do you like to shop online? Visit our online store for your pets flea/tick and heartworm needs. All of our items come directly from our in clinic distributor to your home. You wont have to worry about receiving expired or fraudulent medications. Just remember to make sure your pet is up-to-date on their yearly exam and if ordering heartworm medication for dogs, a yearly heartworm test.

We may be thinking more about fleas and ticks as the weather warms but it's important to keep your pets protected year-round!
