Flea and Tick Prevention

At our animal hospital in Diamond Bar, we understand that our furry friends face numerous hazards, ranging from poisonous critters outdoors to fleas and ticks. While pet vaccinations can help prevent various conditions, flea and tick prevention plays a crucial role in avoiding dermatitis and serious illnesses like Lyme disease. East Valley Emergency Pet Clinic offers a range of preventives for parasites such as fleas, ticks, and heartworms to keep your pet protected.

Why Flea & Tick Prevention in Diamond Bar Is Essential

Due to our warm, often humid climate just outside of Los Angeles, flea and tick prevention is essential for pets that spend time outdoors. Dogs who enjoy exploring the area's nature parks and shared dog parks are more likely to pick up parasites from other animals, grassy areas, and even other pets' feces. This can lead to discomfort, illness, and several conditions that can be transmitted to other pets and humans. Let's discuss some common issues they can cause.

Itching and Skin Conditions

Fleas and ticks can lead to chronically itchy skin, often causing pets to scratch to the point of breaking the skin, resulting in dermatological infections. Bleeding sores, hot spots, and rashes can be particularly troublesome for pets allergic to these pests.

Tick-Specific Related Conditions

Ticks can lead to several serious health problems. Some of the tick-borne diseases their bites can transmit to pets and humans include:

- Lyme Disease

- Ehrlichiosis

- Anaplasmosis

- Babesiosis

- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

- Powassan (POW)

- Tularemia

Worm-Related Diseases

Heartworms, roundworms, and hookworms can quickly invade the body, including the gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular systems. They are aggressive and tend to spread rapidly, leading to irreversible damage or death. Worm infestation can occur in various ways. Infected canines and felines can pass worm eggs to puppies through infected milk and via worm eggs or larvae present in their feces.

Parasite Preventives Our Veterinarians Offer

Fortunately, your pet's risks can be minimized through the routine use of parasite prevention. We offer several effective options, and one is sure to be suitable for your pet. Our vet may make recommendations that best suit your furry friend's lifestyle, including:

- Flea and Tick Shampoos

- Flea and Tick Sprays

- Chewable Worm Preventives

- Flea and Tick Collars

- Parasite Pills

- Liquid Flea & Tick Treatments

Keep Your Pets Parasite-Free With Supplies From Our Animal Hospital

After evaluating and diagnosing your pet's condition, we'll offer appropriate treatment options and may even recommend that other pets in the household be examined in case the issue has been transmitted. We always hope for straightforward solutions, but our veterinarians in Diamond Bar recommend prevention to avoid the need for treatment. Are you looking for a veterinarian near you?
