Wondering how to keep your furry friends free of creepy crawlies this spring?

We are getting ready to spring ahead once again and welcome the warmer weather! But this can also mean your pet may be at risk for a wide variety of parasites including fleas, intestinal worms, and ticks.

We carry a wide range of products for both cats and dogs to help prevent you from ever seeing a flea and decrease the risk of Lyme Disease from ticks. Or if you have found any of these bugs we can help you get rid of them!

In the last several years we have seen a large increase in the tick population in Nova Scotia, and some of these ticks are carrying lyme disease. If you and your dog spend a lot of time in the great outdoors we have something to provide you with tick protection... whether it be a collar or a spot on treatment. Also feel free to ask us about the lyme disease vaccine.

Whether you would like to give your furry friend a chewable tablet, place a collar or a drop on the back of his neck, we have something that works for everyone. This can get confusing on your own, but we are here to help. Any of our friendly staff members would be happy to go over the various products available and help you find what works best for you and your pet!
