We dispense Sentinel heartworm prevention medication to our dog patients to prevent heartworms (which are transmitted by mosquito bites to dogs) and to aid in reducing flea infestations because Sentinel contains luefeneron which interferes with flea egg and larval development. Dogs should be tested before starting this medication if they have not been on a heartworm preventative previously.
We dispense Advantage II for topical use on cats and dogs.
We dispense Cheristan topical for use on cats.
We dispense Nexgard, a chewable treat for dogs that will kill fleas and ticks. It is administered once a month and the dose is based on the dog’s weight. It comes as a six dose pack.
We carry Hills Prescription Diet foods which come in various formulations to aid in disease treatment and prevention. It is important that some cats and dogs be on these foods to reduce incidence of diseases like urinary calculi (stones and crystals), diabetes, chronic digestive upset, kidney insufficiency and weight management.
Be sure to ask about managing pain with your pet. We carry several types of anti-inflammatories as well as prescribe other medications as indicated. Some of the NSAIDS that we stock include meloxicam, a liquid formulation, carprofen–also known as Rimadyl, and Derammax, a flavored chewable tablet.
