VetSupplySource.com is urging pet owners to protect their pets from heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other common pet pests by using proper preventative treatments this spring. If you live in an area that’s had mild winter weather, you may see flea and tick infestations earlier than usual, and Vet Supply Source wants to ensure that people know about the importance of protecting their pet's health.
"Prevention of heartworm disease is so very important," says Jill Metz, a media spokesperson for VetSupplySource.com. "If the heartworm medications are not administered regularly and your dog or cat becomes infected with heartworm disease, the aftermath is much more costly - both in terms of how much money it will cost to reverse, as well as the damage already done to your pet’s overall health."
Warmer weather always brings more pests and parasites, and the unusually warm temperatures some people have been experiencing have already made pest outbreaks worse in the southern and western regions of the United States. Some people choose to forgo giving their pets preventative pest treatments because of the cost, but VetSupplySource.com carries pet care products for prices that the average pet owner can easily afford. They carry big brand pet care products from HeartGard and Frontline, and also have other pet care supplies and products from a variety of other companies.
Don't let your pet be troubled by heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other pests when the weather gets warm. Remember that preventative treatments and regular veterinary care can help your pets stay happy and healthy.
