Stray cats and dogs, rabbits and ferrets can carry flea eggs into your yard. Having a fence doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll keep fleas out.

Even if your cat isn’t scratching, she may still have fleas. Those fleas will lay eggs and then your dog may start to itch!

Fleas have four stages of life: egg, larvae, pupae and adult. All stages can live and cause problems on your pet and in your house.

Did you know? Fleas can transmit tapeworms, which means problems externally and internally for your pet.

Fleas at all stages of life are able to withstand large shifts in temperature. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean your pet is safe. Fleas can survive in lows as cold as 28F and highs up to 95F.

Flea eggs fall off an infested pet as it travels around your house. Be sure to treat the rest of your house after you’ve treated your pet.

A female flea can start laying eggs within 24 hours of feeding and mating, and has the ability to produce 40-50 eggs per day. That’s hundreds of eggs in a few days!

Heartworms can be hard to detect but we can help! Ask us how before they cause severe disease.  

Our heartworm tests is accurate to as few as one female heartworm. Let’s test your pet today and make sure everything is A-OK.
