Pet owners need to make sure their pets are entirely up to date on all of their mandatory vaccinations, as well as optional vaccinations called for by their lifestyle. We also recommend reproductive surgery for anyone not intending to intentionally breed new litters.
Reproductive surgery not only eliminates the possibility of accidental pregnancies, it can also curb unwanted and aggressive behaviors.

Parasites pose a serious health threat to Texans and their companion animals. Left untreated, parasites that infect your dog or cat can be fatal, or in rare cases even be transmitted to you or your human family as a host. Our parasite prevention products can help protect your dog or cat from the following common parasites:
Fleas are external parasites that feed on the blood of birds and mammals. Left untreated, fleas can quickly spread throughout your household.
These external parasites consume the blood of mammals and are responsible for the spread of a number of serious conditions in people and pets.
Tiny, highly contagious ear mites reside in the ear canals of dogs, cats and other mammals. These parasites reproduce continuously throughout their lifespan.
This thread-like parasitic roundworm is spread through mosquito bites and makes its home in the heart, lungs and blood vessels of infected animals.
These parasites live in the digestive tract of cats and dogs where they feed on the pet's blood. Hookworms can lead to anemia.
This parasitic worm lives in the intestine and feeds on partially digested intestinal contents. This parasite can rob your pet of vital nutrients.
Tapeworms are spread through the ingestion of infected fleas during grooming. These hook-like parasitic worms live and grow in your pet's intestines.
Whipworms are spread through the ingestion of soil that has been in contact with an infected dog's feces. Whipworms pose a serious health risk to dogs.
