Warmer weather means fleas, ticks and mosquitoes are more active…and so are you and your pets. That’s why you need parasite preventatives and a new Yeti cooler!

Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes aren’t just annoying—they can transmit nasty parasites and diseases to your pets and cause painful skin issues. Right now, Aspen Arbor is making it worth your while to stock up on preventative medications: purchase a year’s supply of Heartgard heartworm prevention or six doses of Heartgard and a three-month supply of Nexgard flea and tick prevention and you’ll receive a free KONG cow while supplies last. You’ll also be entered to win a new Yeti cooler valued at $300!*

Preventive medications are the best way to keep fleas, ticks, and heartworm away from your pets. No matter which medication you choose, you should still check your pets for fleas and ticks regularly, as fleas can quickly infest your home. Ticks can travel from pets to people, biting your family and spreading many illnesses including Lyme disease.

It’s also important that before you start your pet on heartworm prevention that he or she be tested for the heartworm disease. Many people believe that because of our drier climate in the west, heartworm isn’t a problem; however, the American Heartworm Society reports that heartworm disease is now present in all 50 states and confirmed cases are on the rise.

Your Aspen Arbor veterinarian can help you determine which preventatives are right for your pet. Schedule an appointment online or just give us a call at 720-279-9471.
