  • Heartworm prevention should also be given. Make sure your dog or cat is adequately protected by a product with a wide margin of safety and also a broad range of control over not only heartworms, but also intestinal parasites.
  • Cases of pets ingesting their owners' medications are becoming more frequent. Keep pill supplies safe and all pills accounted for when opening medications to avoid poisoning your pets.
  • Rabies vaccination is important for all pets, even if they are kept mostly indoors. Skunks will come into backyards and porches, and bats are known to enter houses: both animals are frequent rabies carriers in Minnesota. By keeping your pet vaccinated you are helping to protect your family from this fatal disease.

At The Pet Stop Veterinary Clinic, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
