BRAVECTO: Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs
Ticks carry bacteria that causes a very serious disease called Ehrlichia or "Tick Disease." It is the most common and deadly illness for dogs in the CNMI, so it is important to protect your dog from getting any ticks. The most effective medicine for flea and tick prevention is Bravecto; one dose works for 3-4 months. The price per dog (based on your dog's body weight) is listed below.
Mange treatment (pour-on Ivermectin) ($10 per dog)
Mange is caused by tiny mites on the skin that can cause your dogs skin to become red and itchy, and will cause hair to fall out.
If an animal needs emergency medical care, please call Beth on her cellphone at (670)285-5448. She will help you assess the situation and advise on what immediate treatment might be needed. Emergencies receive priority, and will be taken outside of clinic hours.
Sometimes it can be hard to understand how your pet might be feeling. Here are some things you can look out for that might indicate an emergency situation:
Not eating or lowered appetite (even for just one day!)
Lethargy or tiredness
Cuts or wounds, such as from a fight with another animal, person, or being hit by a car
Bleeding from the eyes, ears, mouth, genitals, or anus
Vomiting or diarrhea
Trust your gut. You know how your pet usually acts. If they seem like they might be uncomfortable or in pain, contact us or bring them into the clinic for a checkup.
COST FOR EMERGENCY TREATMENT VARIES. We do not charge for our staff's time, only for the medication your pet needs to be healthy. We offer these medications at cost, meaning you only pay as much as it costs us to purchase and ship.
