Fleas and ticks are not only a nuisance, but can also pose serious health risks to your furry companions. They are persistent adversaries that can disrupt the harmony of your household. That's why we offer comprehensive flea and tick control solutions to ensure the comfort and protection of your pets.

Why Flea and Tick Control Is Essential

Fleas and ticks are common parasites that can infest your pets and home. These pests feed on the blood of animals and humans, causing intense itching and skin irritation. Fleas and ticks can transmit diseases to animals and humans.

Fleas can cause skin allergies, dermatitis, and transmit tapeworms. On the other hand, ticks are known carriers of various diseases, including Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

Comprehensive Flea and Tick Control Services

At Clairemont Village Pet Clinic, we provide professional and personalized flea control and tick control services tailored to your pets' specific needs. Our experienced veterinarians are well-versed in the latest advancements in flea and tick prevention and treatment methods. We offer various services, including preventive measures, diagnosis, treatment, and education.

Preventive Measures for Fleas and Ticks

We recommend regular preventive treatments to keep fleas and ticks at bay. Our veterinarians will assess your pet's health, lifestyle, and environment to determine the most suitable preventative products, such as topical treatments, oral medications, or collars.

Diagnosis and Treatment

If your pet is already infested with fleas or ticks, our vet will conduct a thorough examination to diagnose the problem accurately. We will then provide prompt and effective treatment options to eliminate the parasites and relieve your pet's discomfort. Check out the various treatment options we offer for flea and tick control:

    • Topical treatments: These are applied directly to your furry friend’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades or along the back. Our topical treatments contain insecticides to kill the fleas and ticks on contact and provide long-lasting protection by repelling to prevent re-infestation.
    • Oral medications: We offer chewable tablets or flavored oral treats that your pet can easily consume. In addition to being pet-friendly, these treats kill and inhibit the growth and reproduction of fleas and ticks.
    • Shampoo: We use shampoos for general cleaning that contain active ingredients to kill fleas and ticks on contact and provide protection
    • Flea and tick collars: Flea and tick collars contain active ingredients that repel and kill fleas and ticks, providing continuous defense against infestations. We recommend these if your pets spend lots of time outdoors or in high-risk environments.

Education and Prevention Tips

We believe in empowering pet owners with the knowledge and tools to prevent flea and tick infestations. Our veterinarians will educate you on proper grooming practices, environmental control measures, and preventive steps you can take at home to minimize the risk of infestation.

    I know that I always tell you how wonderful you are to "Nala" and I. But just by the amount of patients you have tells me that other clients feel the same way! You never make us feel like you are rushed. You make sure that we know you care for each and every pet. I have raised many dogs and went to many vets in my lifetime. But never had such a wonderful vet as you. It is very hard to compare any vet to you, because you my friend, are in a class of your own! God bless you, Dr. Diamond. Thank you soooo much for caring about us."
