Fleas and ticks are persistent pests that can make pets feel miserable. If you notice one or more of your pets are excessively scratching and biting at their coat, fleas or ticks often are the cause. Old Town Veterinary Hospital in Murrieta, CA, helps local pet owners control flea or tick infestations that cause pets to scratch and bite at their coats, and possibly cause skin irritation.
Treatments for Fleas and Ticks
Our veterinarian can examine your pet, determine the extent of flea and tick infestation, and help control it. Fleas often cause skin irritation and transmit diseases to your pet. They also spread inside your home and bite you and others. Likewise, ticks can be dangerous and transmit diseases that carry Lyme disease and other potentially deadly contagions.
Our veterinarian staff can remove fleas and ticks with shampoo, bath, and medication. These steps cause the pests to die and prevent them from returning. In addition, our veterinarian can prescribe a treatment plan that helps control the problem and help your pet stay healthy and happy.
Pet Wellness Exam
We are also happy to provide your pet with a full wellness exam that helps it enjoy good health well into its senior years. We can draw a blood sample, perform bloodwork quickly during the same visit, and determine if other medical conditions might exist. If we detect a serious problem, we can initiate a treatment plan to try to cure it and enable your pet to live a longer and healthier life.
