Lyme disease is a real threat to our geographic area, and the prevalence is increasing. One of the best ways to protect your pet is by having your dog get a Lyme vaccination. Take advantage of our beautiful Minnesota weather by hiking and being outside, knowing your pet is fully protected from this nasty parasite.
Heartland Animal Hospital in both Faribault and Owatonna go even a step further in protection, by offering a combination vaccination for Lyme and Leptospirosis. Don't let fear of disease or illness for your dog keep you indoors when there are preventive solutions available. Here are a few other preventive steps to take:
Consider all the joy and love your dog brings into your life. Now, imagine if you could take measures to help your dog live longer with a better quality of life. Wouldn’t you want to return the happiness your dog provides you for years to come?
Fortunately, with proper care over your dog’s lifetime, he or she can live happier, healthier, and statistically longer.
If you only visit Heartland Animal Vets when your pet is injured or sick, you’re missing the opportunity to get a complete picture of her health. The preventive care exam allows our veterinarians to detect potential health issues and begin monitoring or treating them right away. By committing to preventive care, you could extend it by months or years. It’s well worth the investment when you consider how much love and joy your pet brings into your life.
Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin. Your dog or cat will naturally bite, chew, lick or scratch his skin in response to an irritant. Unfortunately for your pet, this tends to increase rather than decrease his discomfort. Anal gland disease, allergies to fleas or food ingredients, mange, tick bites, and inadequate grooming are the primary causes of hot spots in companion animals.
Our Mission at Heartland Animal Hospital is to provide quality, compassionate medicine. Locations in Faribault, MN 507-332-0716 and Owatonna 507-214-7387.
