Does my dog need to be on Heartworm and Flea prevention?

Yes! It is imperative that your dog be on preventions year round. South Carolina is in the top 5 states for highest cases of Heartworm disease in the U.S. ( It only takes 1 mosquito bite! Flea and tick prevention is also very important due to the fact that both fleas and ticks can transmit diseases.

Should I get my pet fixed (spayed or neutered)?

Yes, we highly recommend that you have your pet fixed. This will decrease the risks of roaming, unwanted pregnancies, aggressive behavior, as well as diseases that can be life-threatening to your pet. Please call us to make an appointment so we can evaluate your pet and get you an estimate. We also offer microchipping and post-operative onesies to cover your pet’s incision.

Should I brush my pet's teeth?

It is proven that brushing your dog or cat’s teeth can indeed slow the progression of dental disease and problems. We know that this is not always possible in our fur babies. We offer other options such as Oravet dental chews as well as dental prophylaxis (dental cleanings).
