Flea and Tick Prevention in Nashville
At The Animal Hospital of West Nashville, our goal is to provide a complete range of services for your pet from wellness exams to vaccinations. Our veterinarian keeps your pet healthy and happy by providing year-round checkups, medications, and treatment options for flea and tick prevention.
The Impact of Fleas and Ticks on Pets
Pets who do not have the benefit of an active flea and tick prevention program provide an on-going buffet for these bloodsucking pests. Feeding on your pet's blood can lead to health problems such as allergic reactions, tapeworms, and tick paralysis. Contracting a disease such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever or Lyme disease are also possibilities that require antibiotics and other prescribed medications to be administered. If medication is needed, our veterinarian provides the convenience of licensed and certified pharmacy services.
The Benefits of Flea and Tick Prevention
Flea and tick prevention options can be managed by providing your pet with a comprehensive check-up which includes vaccinations and developing a plan of action to keep fleas and ticks at bay. By maintaining a consistent tick and flea prevention program, your pet will feel good, look good, and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. It also means your home and yard won't be susceptible to an infestation caused by your pets.
