They might not sound ominous, but if left ignored, they can lead to several serious health problems such as anemia.


What You Can Do To Prevent These Pests

We recommend that your pet has regular checkups so that fleas and ticks can be prevented. Our veterinarians will guide you regarding flea and tick prevention for your pet. The warm and moist fur of certain pets provides ideal conditions for fleas and ticks to thrive. Fleas and ticks tend to be more common during warmer months but they can happen at any time of the year. Typical signs of fleas or ticks in pets include excessive scratching and hair loss. Each type of pet will show different symptoms of being infested with fleas or ticks.

One of the best preventive treatments for fleas and ticks is maintaining proper hygiene. Our veterinarians can help you find the best type of shampoo and other products to use for your pet. Be sure to consult with a professional veterinarian before using any products on your pet. Certain products are only meant for specific breeds of pets and might be dangerous for others.

The hygiene of your pet includes its environment. Your pet can get fleas and ticks from other pets or the surroundings. If your pet sleeps in a particular area, make sure that area gets regular cleaning. The area should not be damp, as fleas and ticks thrive in damp conditions. Also, check the humidity level of the room. If the humidity is high, you need to have better ventilation in the room. A veterinarian might also recommend certain medications that will provide ticks and fleas treatment or prevention.

What our patient say

  • "My dog Buster was in pain and wasn’t acting like himself. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Gill ASAP. He did a remarkable job during the initial exam to diagnose the problem and recommend additional treatments/services to relieve the pain Buster was in. After doing X-rays and blood work it was determined my little guy was suffering from intervertebral disc disease."
  • "This place was awesome. They took such good care of my giant Rottweiler during an emergency. They even called the next day to check up on her. The price was reasonable too. Went back again and the treatment was great yet again. Love that they stay open late and open everyday. So convenient. Thanks guys for treating my girl as is she was family!"
  • "I’m planning to travel with my baby cat. In order to do that she has to do a Rabies Neutralization Antibody Testing from certified lab. I was lucky to reach out Dr. Gill. He explained to me throughly and helped me to get it done. I would recommend Dr. Gill to everyone who needs professional and friendly help on their loved pets."
  • "I’m very happy with the service and prices of the Silicon Valley Pet Clinic. I have gotten quotes from other vets around and SVPC offers the best value! I took my dog in to get some growths removed and get this teeth cleaned."
  • "My 16 yr old cat Pete had some green discharge coming from his eye. I recently brought a feral kitten in to care for that my cousin found. I figured that Pete probably got scratched in the eye from the little guy."
  • "I was very nervous to have her spayed, especially after going through an episode of Giardia. She has been dealing with poop that is not consistent and we are doing some probiotic treatment."
