Now Offering Nexgard For Fleas and Tick Treatment


We are pleased to introduce Nexgard for the treatment of fleas and ticks. Nexgard is a chewable tablet that is given once a month. It is not brand new to the market, and we have had a chance to witness it’s continued safety and reports of ease of use at other hospitals. Most importantly, it provides a layer of protection that our previous recommendation did not: TICKS. Ticks are not just a nuisance, but also carry dangerous diseases that can threaten your pet’s life. We feel it is important to provide year round protection against ticks.

Nexgard does not provide heartworm protection so it is imperative that a monthly heartworm medication is also given. We recommend Heartgard Plus for most patients.

Our doctors are always seeking to provide you with the best medications for for your pet. Fleas and ticks are year round pests in Florida, especially to our pets. The retail market has been flooded with new flea medications over the past several years. All of the choices can easily leave a pet owner wondering what is the best option. Our goal is to recommend and sell what our doctors consider to be the best all around choice. The factors that go into our recommendations include first and foremost: safety. Effectiveness, pricing, ease of administration and availability are also important factors to consider.

Are there other products on the market that will work for your pet? Yes, but we feel this is the best fit for most of our patients. We are confident that most pets and their owners will be happy with Nexgard. In the case that this product is not a good fit, other options are available through our online store. The store offers competitive prices with the reassurance that the products are coming straight from the same manufacturers and distributors that we use here in the office.

We know that change can be hard. Change can also be a good thing, and we believe by offering more complete protection, we are serving our patients best. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we help you make this change to your pet’s routine.
