We at Pet Vet in Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada, specializes in providing a variety of healthcare services for cats and dogs. Our mission is to help your pet stay healthy through our services and treatments. Before visiting us, we invite you to learn a little bit about the importance of flea and tick prevention.
In Manitoba, spring brings with it a significant exposure to ticks and to a lesser degree, fleas. Tick exposure is a significant concern for us, with the risk of transmitting Lyme disease, Anaplasma and Erlichia canis. All three of these diseases can cause illness, and in some cases even death.
A well-rounded strategy for tick prevention involves daily tick checks, medications to prevent ticks from transmitting diseases and vaccination. Our doctors can assess risks for your pets and personalize a prevention strategy based on your specific risk factors.
Medication for Flea and Tick Prevention
When your visit our clinic for preventive care, we will do a comprehensive physical exam and assessment based on lifestyle and geographical exposure.
If medication is recommended, we can discuss options such as specific spot-on medications or once-a-month tablets to prevent tick disease transmission. We do not recommend tick collars as a useful means of prevention.
