Parasites & Parasite Screening
We have adopted the recommendations of CAPC (Companion Animal Parasite Council) and the American Heartworm Association by recommending all dogs and cats receive year round broad-spectrum parasite control with efficacy against heart worm, intestinal parasites, fleas and ticks. We recommend your pet has a parasite screen at least once as a puppy/kitten and then annually thereafter. This ensures the monthly medication is working properly and also allows us to diagnose and treat parasites not covered by our broad spectrum preventatives. We recommend the following products: Interceptor®, Frontline®, and Revolution®. Our Doctors will help you determine which ones are right for your pet. We want to protect your pet and the community, as well as you and your family.

 

Osteoarthritis in Dogs and Cats
Just like humans, dogs and cats may suffer from osteoarthritis and the pain associated with it.  If you notice your pet is reluctant to run, jump, and play or has difficulty standing, he or she may be suffering from arthritis pain.  The good news is that osteoarthritis is manageable with joint supplements containing glucosamine, chondroitin and anti inflammatory medication.  Human pain medication should never be used in dogs and cats unless prescribed by a veterinarian.  Dogs and cats do not metabolize ibuprofen or acetaminophen as efficiently as people and it can be harmful to them.  Aspirin may also cause problems in dogs and cats and should used cautiously.  If your pet is showing signs of painful joints, the veterinarians at Snake River Veterinary Center can prescribe medications to make them more comfortable and improve their quality of life.
