Canine Parasite Prevention

Happy Dog
Parasite Prevention Plan: Dog (heartworm/flea/tick/GI parasite prevention starting at 6 months of age)

One of the most important prevention steps that can be taken to keep your pet happy and healthy is broad-spectrum parasite prevention. This is also important for the health of your family because some Gastrointestinal (GI) parasites are zoonotic (can be transmitted to people) and other parasites (ticks and fleas) can transmit diseases to people.

Heartworm disease is very prevalent in Fort Worth and can lead to chronic health issues relating to the heart, lungs, vessels, and even the kidneys. Heartworm disease can also lead to heart failure and death. Fortunately, it is nearly 100% preventable. This plan is designed to provide the highest level of protection at an affordable monthly fee. The heartworm prevention included in the plan is ProHeart6, a twice-yearly injection under the skin that is performed at our office. It is very safe and provides the most consistent protection with only 2 doses each year. Click here for more information about ProHeart6 in your pet.

Flea and tick infestations are an extremely common problem in Fort Worth. Flea allergies are also very common and can lead to intense itching and discomfort. Both fleas and ticks can transmit diseases to both your pets and you. For all these reasons and more, flea and tick prevention is also recommended year-around in your dog. Summer Creek Animal Clinic recommends a product called Simparica, which is the product included in our Parasite Prevention Plan for dogs. It is a monthly, oral chewable tablet that is tasty and provides the best protection against both fleas and all 5 common tick species for the full month. Ask us about monthly notifications to help you remember to give Simparica to your pet on time, every time. Click here for more information about Simparica in your pet.

ProHeart6 provides some GI parasite prevention. If while on ProHeart6 your dog comes up positive for hookworms, roundworms, or whipworms we will cover the cost of the treatment only.

2. 25.1-50 lbs $24

5. 100-132 lbs $30

  • The savings on average for all weight classes except >132 lbs is $30 annually compared to already competitive retail prices.
  • The savings on the >132 lbs weight class is up to $100 annually.
  • In addition to the savings mentioned above there is an annual $50 manufacturer rebate with the ProHeart6 and Simparica combination, making the Summer Creek Animal Clinic Parasite Prevention Plan the best deal around.
  • One-time, non-refundable, $10 enrollment fee and the first three months due at sign-up.
  • The enrollment fee is waived if you sign up in conjunction with the Preventive Care Club Puppy, Adult or Senior plan

Feline Parasite Prevention

Funny red cat flying in the air in autumn
Parasite Prevention Plan: Cat (heartworm/flea/GI parasite prevention starting once over 5 lbs)

One of the most important prevention steps that can be taken to keep your pet happy and healthy is broad-spectrum parasite prevention. This is also important for the health of your family because some GI parasites are zoonotic (can be transmitted to people) and other parasites carry diseases that can be transmitted to people.

Heartworm disease is very prevalent in Fort Worth, and in the past has been grossly overlooked in cats. Though heartworms prefer dogs instead of cats, heartworms do develop in cats. If the worms mature to adulthood, they cannot be treated and can, unfortunately, lead to sudden death. The immature stages of the heartworm migrate through the lungs often causing chronic inflammation. This is a common cause of chronic coughing and lung disease in cats. Sadly, indoor cats are not impervious to heartworms. A study conducted by North Carolina State University found that 27% of the cats diagnosed with heartworms were inside-only cats. Another study in San Antonio, TX revealed that 9% of all indoor only cats in the study had been exposed to heartworms. It takes only one mosquito to infect a cat, and because mosquitoes can get indoors, both indoor and outdoor cats are at risk and should receive heartworm-prevention medication. In light of the above, the American Heartworm Society, American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP), and Summer Creek Animal Clinic strongly recommend year-round heartworm prevention for all cats. In our Parasite Prevention Plan, we include a topical monthly product called Revolution Plus, which is the best comprehensive parasite-prevention product for cats. Ask us about monthly notifications to help you remember to give Revolution Plus to your cat on time every time. http://revolution4cats.com/compare-treatments.aspx

Flea infestations are an extremely common problem in Fort Worth. Flea allergies are also very common and can lead to intense itching and discomfort. Both fleas and ticks can transmit diseases to both you and your pets. For these reasons, flea prevention is also recommended year-around for your dog. The ingredient in the standard Revolution (selamectin) has good flea prevention, but the additional ingredient in Revolution Plus (sarolaner) gives it the best flea prevention on the market. The sarolaner also provides superior tick prevention for all common tick species found in Texas.

GastroIntestinal Parasite Prevention and deworming is an important part of this plan. Revolution also provides a monthly deworming against common GI parasites. This, along with annual fecal screening and additional treatments as needed, will help keep your pet and family happy and healthy.

Monthly Rate Parasite Prevention Plan Feline (heartworm/flea/tick/GI parasite prevention) - Cats between 5-22 lbs: $18.

  • The savings is up to $16 annually compared to already competitive retail prices.
  • In addition to the savings mentioned above there is an annual $35 manufacturer rebate with the Revolution making Summer Creek Animal Clinic Parasite Prevention Plans the best deal around (net price for a 6 mo box of Revolution after rebates is $84.50).
  • Not only is it the best deal, but you also benefit from the manufacturer’s 100% satisfaction guarantee, which is only valid when purchased through a veterinarian (not an online pharmacy).
  • One-time, non-refundable, $10 enrollment fee and the first three months due at sign-up.
  • The enrollment fee is waived if you sign up in conjunction with the Preventive Care Club Kitten, Adult, or Senior plan

Dental Prevention

British cat and Golden Retriever
Dental Prevention Plan: Dog and Cat (any age)

One of the most overlooked aspects of disease prevention in our dogs and cats is dental care, and periodontal disease is the most common dental disease in dogs and cats. By age three, 85% of dogs and 75% of cats have some form of periodontal disease. If this infection and inflammation under their gums is left unchecked, it will lead to silent pain and may result in premature death. Dogs and cats do not show oral pain as we might expect, but periodontal disease is most definitely painful.

At Summer Creek Animal Clinic, we want to do everything we can to help provide your pet with a disease free and comfortable mouth for their entire lives. At the minimum, this includes annual professional dental procedures (Dental Cleanings) and effective at-home oral hygiene between dental procedures. Our Dental Prevention Plan will help make this possible by providing good professional dental care at an affordable monthly rate.

Unfortunately, the level of dental care provided by veterinarians is not standardized. Consequently, there are crucial treatments that should be included in every dental procedure; however, you cannot assume that every veterinarian will include them in their practice. The goal of any professional dental procedure is to remove infection, inflammation, and any source of pain. A simple scaling of the teeth will not achieve this goal. Instead, the procedures that must be included to accomplish our goal of removing infection, inflammation, and pain are anesthesia, full-mouth Digital Dental X-Rays to evaluate under the gumline, a thorough oral exam with probing by a trained professional or veterinarian, and adequate veterinarian education and training to identify and treat all sources of infection, inflammation, and pain. We are equipped with all of these capabilities at Summer Creek Animal Clinic so you can be assured that your beloved pet will be well cared for.

We take anesthesia very seriously and comply with the highest standard to ensure minimal risk for your pet. Pre-anesthetic blood work to evaluate organ function is included. Please see our anesthesia services page for more details.

Monthly Rate Dental Prevention Plan: Dog and Cat (includes one annual professional dental procedure and cleaning) - Dogs and Cats: $25.

  • Dental Prevention Plan members save $50 annually on the base cost of the dental procedure ($300 instead of $350)
  • All additional dental-specific items needed during a dental procedure (i.e., local anesthesia, dental extractions, etc.) are discounted 10% for all Dental Prevention Plan members.
  • It is important to note the high quality of dentistry we provide because it cannot be compared to “low-cost” dentistry that often leaves disease behind in your pet’s mouth. We intentionally priced the high level of dentistry that we provide lower than typical so we can serve a broader population of pets.
  • One-time, non-refundable, $10 enrollment fee and the first three months due at sign-up..
  • The enrollment fee is waived if you sign up in conjunction with the Preventive Care Club Adult or Senior plan
