              Medical Center

As a veterinarian, people always ask me where did THOSE come from?  Meaning those fleas on my kitty who never goes outdoors or that tick that my dog came home with.   

Fleas are super-sophisticated and adaptable…..many of the products we’ve relied on in the past no longer work….and some of them are just down-right unsafe.    That dog that passes your front door on his way outside may be leaving fleas on YOUR “Welcome” mat!  We can help…call us TODAY!
