Get Flea, Tick, Heartworm Parasite Prevention in Homer Glen! 

The best way to protect your pet from pests is through pet preventatives at your veterinarian in Homer Glen. Here at Colonial Manor Animal Hospital we know the importance of flea, tick, heartworm, and parasite prevention. These pest control solutions are your pet’s greatest defense against these health concerns. Find out what you need to know about pet preventatives at your Homer Glen veterinarian. 

Is a Flea, Tick, Heartworm Prevention All in One a Good Idea?

Here at Colonial Manor we do use a flea, tick, heartworm prevention all in one medicine when it best suits your pet’s needs. Some pets, such as those who are housebound and not around other animals, are less likely to need certain treatments because they are not exposed to pests like fleas or ticks. For outdoor animals your Homer Glen animal hospital will typically suggest a combination treatment for fleas, ticks, heartworm, and parasites as these pets are more likely to be exposed to all types. 

What is the Best Heartworm and Flea Pet Preventatives?

The market for the best heartworm and flea pet preventatives is massive. There are consistently strong pest control products available to pet owners. As a result it’s nearly impossible to choose which one is best. For example, your Homer Glen veterinarian may suggest Vectra 3D, Simparica, Proheart, and Heartgard are well-respected and useful pet preventatives. However, pets vary in their environments, skin conditions, allergens, and health risks. As a result, what is best suited for one pet may not be as effective for pest control for another pet. Your best solution is to speak with your veterinarian in Homer Glen to determine which flea, tick, heartworm, and parasite prevention medication is the right choice. You may also need to do trial-and-error with a few different treatments before you find the best treatment for your pet.
