  • LYME

    • Dogs who go to parks, camping, travel with the owners and stop at rest areas for potty breaks.
  • Many of the better heartworm prevention products also protect from intestinal parasites and even external parasites. Protecting your pet from these also protects you and your family from these parasites.
  • Heartworms are transmitted to cats and dogs through the bite of a mosquito.  Although it seems that freezing temperatures in the winter would kill off the mosquitoes that is very undependable.  Some mosquitoes lay cold tolerant eggs and others lay eggs that hatch at the first warm conditions.  Since it is such a devastating disease and we because we can never be sure the winter conditions will keep the mosquitoes at bay, heartworm prevention is recommended year round.
  • Start by 8 weeks of age and maintain monthly all year round.
  • We have all had the occasional mosquito buzzing around inside our house, so we know the mosquitos can get in.
  • Through studies looking at the infection rate of cats, we think it is about 10% of the rate of dogs.
  • Although cats handle heartworm disease differently than dogs, they can also suffer a massive even fatal response to the heartworm.
  • There is no routine or widely accepted treatment for cats who get heartworms.
  • Many of the better heartworm prevention products also protect from intestinal parasites and even external parasites. Protecting your pet from these also protects you and your family from these parasites.

I will never take my pets anywhere else but here. They are the most caring and patient animal hospital and every member of their staff is incredible. I know that they listen to any concerns and issues I may have, they understand how important my dog is to me, and are genuine and communicate very openly.

My regular vet would not squeeze me in when my Cavalier had an eye infection. worried about his sight i called around and nobody would see me except for Angel Animal. the wait was a little long but after all they did squeeze me in. The staff and vet were wonderful, they were so good to my little fur baby and the drops she gave me cleared his eye up that same day. Guess who my new vet is?

I had to put my kitty down that I had ever since I was 7 years old! It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. The staff at Angel Animal Hospital were so kind, understanding, and sincere. They definitely took care of my baby when she needed it the most. Would recommend for all types of veterinary visits, they will take care of your fur babies!

We recently took our new puppy in for an initial wellness checkup and shots. The environment was so inviting and pleasant. It evoked a feeling of calmness. The staff was friendly, professional, and kind. We saw Doctor Clark who was personable and extremely knowledgeable. She and her staff made our puppy and us feel totally at ease. Will definitely be making this our place for all our veterinarian needs. A+ recommendation! Thank you to the entire staff at Angel Animal Hospital. Kim and Doug Empson

We really like but what keeps us coming back is Dr. Lehmann and the wonderful vet techs who walk us back and help out with appointments. Dr. Lehmann is so thorough and loving to our dogs and we trust her completely. We like the overall clinic as well but I'm sure there are plenty of lovely clinics around! We really just love her and appreciate the care we get with her every time!

My name is Vanessy Cortes. I’ve always been leery taking my cats to the vet. With videos and stuff you see on the internet (yes, it is to my detriment), you can see why any person who truly loves their pets can be a bit suspicious. And when I say truly loves, I love my cats like they are my kids! But when it came to Angels Animal Hospital, from the dr, to the vet assistant, and down to the receptionist; I felt nothing but sincere care towards my cat Caesar. I took him in because I felt that he had respiratory problems and just knew he wasn’t feeling himself, Dr. Clark diagnosed him. With a proper exam and X-rays, she couldn’t find what was wrong with them. Still, in my heart I knew there was something wrong. She proscribed antibiotics and sent us on our way. Going home,i still felt a bit skeptical and sad because I knew Caesar was sick and we couldn’t find what was wrong with him. A week later, with the antibiotics and a phone call from Dr Clark, herself, and a card from the staff, Caesar is back to his normal self and I grew to loving this hospital! Dr. Clark is amazing and everything you expect you’re veterinarian to be. Thank Angel Animal Hospital for all you do!
