  • Most puppies and kittens are born with hookworms or roundworms.

Skin and Coat
  • Your pet’s healthy, shiny coat is a good indicator that she is healthy and happy.
  • Dogs that obsessively lick (usually their front legs) often have allergies.
  • To treat skin issues, try our line of skin care products for cats and dogs.
Ear Care
  • Your pet’s ears are traps for parasites and bacteria.
  • Floppy-eared dogs like beagles and cocker spaniels are extra vulnerable.
  • Pet ears should be cleaned every two weeks by flushing your pet’s ears with our ear care treatment for cats or for dogs.
