Does my pet need to be on heartworm prevention year around?
Yes!! Heartworms are a serious issue year round and are transmitted from infected mosquitoes. Heartworms can be found in both dogs and cats and can lead to death if action is not taken to prevent or treat these heartworms. Giving your pet heartworm preventive medication is the best possible way to ensure your pet does not encounter heartworm disease. Heartworm preventions also prevent some of the more common intestinal parasites of which some can be zoonotic.

Why should my pet get blood work?
Blood work allows us to check for internal organ disease that would normally not show up on your pet’s physical exam. This blood work is extremely important in identifying internal disease before it becomes a serious issue.
Why should I spay or neuter my dog and/or cat?
A spay or neuter procedure is the best way to guarantee your pet will not have an unexpected litter.
Spaying and neutering also contributes to minimizing other diseases such as mammary cancer, prostate disease, and a serious uterine infection known as pyometra. Every year, thousands of animals are left unwanted, abandoned, or placed into adoption shelters across the country and we strive to eliminate this serious issue. Call us today at 931-728-6633 to make an appointment to have your pet spayed or neutered.
How old does my pet need to be to have a spay or neuter procedure performed?
Our veterinarians recommend your pet be at least 6 months old before being spayed or neutered.
