Your Veterinarian can help you with all of the questions you have about your pet’s coat, skin condition, and general health. When you take your pet for a physical exam make sure to ask any questions you have about your pet’s skin. Keeping yourself aware of your pet’s lumps and bumps is another important aspect of your pets health. Make sure to show them to your Veterinarian and monitor for changes in size, shape, and color.


Having your pet vaccinated for Rabies and Distemper as recommended by your Veterinarian is the safest way to ensure your pet’s health. Based on the area you live in, your Veterinarian may also recommend the Lyme and Leptospirosis Vaccines for your dog. If you frequently take your dog to a boarding facility, grooming salon, or dog park; it is also recommended to keep your dog up to date on the Bordetella Vaccine.


Giving your pet a monthly Heartworm Preventative is the safest and most effective way to prevent Heartworm Disease and Intestinal Parasites. Research the products recommended by your Veterinarian and choose one that suites you and your pet.


Give your pet Flea/Tick & Heartworm Preventative once per month Every month!


Frontline Plus, Nexgard, Advantage, K9 Advantix, and Revolution are the most common Flea/Tick Preventatives recommended by veterinarians in Maryland. Using one of these products properly is ESSENTIAL to prevent your pets from picking up a flea or tick problem.

Apply this product ONCE PER MONTH - YEAR ROUND. Unfortunately, it does not get cold enough in Maryland to kill off fleas and ticks.

YOUR FLEA & TICK PREVENTATIVE WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE IF YOU APPLY WITHIN 2 DAYS BEFORE OR AFTER A BATH. THESE PRODUCTS USE THE SEBACEOUS OILS OF YOUR PETS SKIN TO TRAVEL ALL OVER YOUR PETS BODY. YOU MUST APPLY THE LIQUID DIRECTLY ON THE SKIN.
