BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

George F. Bowers, DVM “Parasite Protection”

It is springtime in Franklin County, which means warmer weather, flowers…and the return of fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Now is the time to protect your furry friends from those bothersome parasites and the dangerous diseases they spread. Ticks are already out and about, and these parasites carry diseases such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichia and Lyme Disease—all of which can sicken both pets and people. By using a good tick control product on your pets, you keep them and your family safe, because a protected pet won’t bring ticks inside. Fleas are the number one cause of itchiness and skin infections in dogs and cats, and fleas carry Bartonella and Mycoplasma, two microscopic parasites that can sicken or kill dogs, cats, and people. Quality flea control is well worth its price, because it prevents expensive and uncomfortable skin infections. All pets, indoors and outdoors, should be on a good flea preventative product. Mosquitoes are difficult to control, and they spread heartworms, which are fatal to dogs and cats. You can reduce mosquito number by removing standing water or using mosquito “dunks” in birdbaths and livestock water tanks. Unfortunately, complete elimination of mosquitoes is impossible, so the only way to protect your pet from heartworms is to give them a preventative every 30 days year-round. Your veterinarian is always the best resource to suggest the right parasite control products for your pets. Call us today!

Office Location: Animal Care Center George Bowers, DVM 1626 Sharp Springs Road Winchester, TN 37398 967-6345 Office Hours: Monday thru Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
