Parasite Prevention

The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.

At HomeTown Animal Hospital, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. But pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.

The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Parasites like heartworm can even be fatal, so preventing parasites is of the utmost importance.

We had an emergency with what we believe was a poisoned terrier. They took us right in and took fantastic care of our little loved one. They kept her all day but by days end she was doing better. Now she has made a full recovery but it sure was scary there for a little while. Dr. Palmer and all the staff were awesome! I just wanted everyone to know that Hometown made us feel like family. Little Frankie thanks you too!

The staff at Hometown are so unbelievably amazing. They truly care for our extended family members. I can't say enough great things especially Dr. Munck she has a special place in our hearts. She took such great care of our pup when he was sick. Thank you so much!!!

Thanks to Dr. Amy for her kind compassionate care with our very old Dachshund. We were on vacation when our 15yr old doxie got very ill. Unfortunately we had to make that very hard end of life decision. Dr. Amy led us through the procedure, cried with us and gave us hugs. Thank you very much!!!

They are the best. Amy is amazing and so kind. She helped us with our pitty max who ended up having to put down because of cancer. She was there every step of the way making sure he was happy and comfortable.
