Parasite Prevention

Protecting your pet from parasites

Heineke Veterinary Hospital offers a large selection of heartworm, intestinal parasite, flea, and tick prevention products at competitive prices. No one product is perfect for all pets because each pet – and its companion family – has a different lifestyle and needs. At HVH, we recommend year-round protection for your pet. Call us today and set up an appointment to have your pet tested for parasites by one of our experienced veterinarians and let us help you find the right preventative treatment that suits you and your pet.

Revolution (salamectin)

Revolution (salamectin)
Revolution is a medication that treats, controls, and prevents a broad range of external and internal parasites such as fleas and flea eggs, ticks, heartworms, ear mites, roundworms, and hookworms. Revolution is a simple monthly topical treatment applied to your cat or dog’s neck at the base of the hair on the skin, and it dries quickly so there is no oily mess to worry about. Revolution is one of the more-preferred preventative treatments for cat owners.
