Local Medical Issues
There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health, many of which require year-round attention. Heartworm, for example, which is transmitted by mosquitoes that thrive in our region, can affect both cats and dogs. Because our winter temperatures here do not get cold enough to effectively kill mosquito eggs, heartworm is a year-round risk. Likewise, fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites thrive in our warm humid environment.
Based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and the Companion Animal Parasite Council, we strongly encourage twice-yearly fecal parasite exams and regular deworming to protect both four-legged and human family members. Many of the parasites we see are zoonotic, meaning that humans can contract them from pets. The abundance of trees, molds and plants in our heavily forested area can be a source of allergies for some pets. Many animals suffer from hypersensitivities to these potential allergens, the signs of which can include scratching, redness, irritation and or infection of the skin or ears. Leptospirosis is another concern for family pets, as they are often exposed to the urine of wildlife, particularly in The Woodlands and surrounding areas, because there is so much native wildlife near our homes. Please discuss these and any other questions you may have about your pet's health care with a member of our well-trained health care team, or with one of our caring doctors. We'll be happy to give you more information and handouts on common pet health issues. We truly want to provide you and your pets with the best health care possible!
