Protecting your pet with vaccines and preventatives is a big part of ensuring their safety and well being. Bringing Fido in for rabies, distemper/parvo/parainfluenza/adenovirus, leptospirosis, bordetella, canine influenza, a stool sample, heartworm test, heartworm preventative, and flea/tick preventative can be a valuable yet pricey trip. We understand that sometimes that chunk of change isn’t lying under the cushions your furry friend sleeps on, but fortunately we have a couple of tips to help split that cost and also save in the long run![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Opt for Proheart as your pet’s heartworm preventative. This preventative option is unique in the fact that it is administered as a six month injection instead of a monthly pill/topical treatment. Going with Proheart provides the benefit of avoiding missed or late dosing of your pet’s heartworm preventative so long as you come back in time for the next injection (side note: we will call and remind you). We are all busy, late dosing on a preventative leaves your pet at risk, and trust us, mosquitoes don’t play the waiting game when it comes to biting us or our pets.
Selecting Proheart has provided another benefit for your wallet. You can choose to split your vaccinations and administer bordetella as well as the canine influenza during the second of the biyearly preventative injections. You can even choose to split the cost of your flea and tick preventatives to purchase 6 months at a time to further disperse payment into smaller biyearly amounts. If you really plan it out, you can perform the yearly stool sample at this time as well to get as close to even amounts as possible! Keep in mind also, that because you have chosen Proheart, you pay NOTHING for your pet’s heartworm test (a $40 savings).
Choosing this option also has the benefit of putting your pet in front of one of our amazing doctors more often which is great for health maintenance!
