GREENFIELD, Wis., April 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dog owners from the Midwest and beyond can protect their canine companions from Lyme disease this month with the convenience of no-mess tick and flea preventative chewable tablets and wellness exams, while enjoying exclusive discounts and payment options from this reputable animal hospital in Wisconsin.
As the spring weather gradually coaxes the nation from its long winter's nap, something else has also stirred among the woodlands and lawns of innocent citizens everywhere - ticks. Pet lovers and veterinarians know these tiny parasites can be not only annoying but dangerous, as each tick carries a chance of transmitting Lyme disease to bitten dogs. The Companion Animal Parasite Council reports that one in sixteen dogs test positive for Lyme disease in the United States each year. Lyme disease is treatable with current prescription medication strategies, but prevention is the best treatment and recommended by animal hospitals like Milwaukee-based Greenfield Veterinary Clinic.
In an effort to create awareness for Lyme disease prevention, Dr. James P. Work of Greenfield Veterinary Clinic is showcasing the clinic's wellness exams and convenient Bravecto tick repellant tablets to all dog lovers this April, which is national 'Prevent Lyme Disease in Dogs' month. Bravecto is a convenient chewable for dogs six months and older and provides tick protection up to three times longer than traditional external tick protection applications. First-time patients at the clinic receive their first exam free, and discounts are available for repeat customers who are seniors, military, owners of multiple pets, local rescue groups and more.
"This is a great opportunity for owners to protect their pets from ticks for the season and catch up on wellness checkups," says Dr. Work. "We have over fifty years of experience, and we feel that's a real benefit to the animals that come to see us on a regular basis."
"I wouldn't trust my two English Labrador Retrievers with anyone other than Dr. Work," says Shannon, a pet owner and regular visitor of Greenfield Veterinary Clinic. "He is gentle with my fur babies and always a pleasure to work with. I can't recommend this vet enough!"
Greenfield Veterinary Clinic welcomes new patients near and far and has a convenient online fill-out form for first-time patients on their website. For more information about tick prevention, Bravecto tablets, Lyme disease, exam discounts, and more, pet owners can contact them by phone at (414) 282-5230.
