Cat Product Announcement Policies Home
  To ensure that all clients of Town and Country Animal Clinic are provided with the best possible recommendations and services for their cats, the doctors and health care team are proud to announce the availability of the following products. These products are effective and none of them require giving pills or oral liquids to your cat. We are excited to have these products in stock.

A spot on that kills fleas and ear mites, prevents heartworm disease (yes, cats can get this deadly disease), and controls roundworms and hookworms.

Roundworms: A parasite of all ages of cats. These are long white worms that live in the intestinal tract and can cause vomiting and diarrhea. This parasite is also zoonotic, meaning there is potential health concern for people. If the eggs of this parasite are accidentally swallowed, the larval (or baby) stage can migrate out of the intestinal tract of people and migrate through the body. The most serious consequence can be vision loss or impairment if the larvae migrate to the retina or optic disc. This not usually a concern for adults who wash their hands before they eat but a much greater risk for children who pet their cats or play in contaminated litter boxes or soil and put their fingers in their mouths. We encourage you to visit www.petsandparasites.org for more information.

Hookworms: A parasite of all ages of cats. These worms can cause weight loss, vomiting, and diarrhea. Hookworms lay thousands of eggs which readily contaminate the environment. This parasite is also zoonotic. The larval stage can hatch out in the soil and enter people’s skin causing a rash or migratory tracts which look like raised welts. We encourage you to visit www.petsandparasites.org for more information.

Heartworms: There is no cure for feline heartworm disease therefore prevention is essential.

An injectable antibiotic, which provides sustained levels of therapy in your cat for up to two weeks. For many cat owners and for many cats, being given a pill or liquid twice a day for two weeks may not be manageable. This antibiotic takes the stress out of treating many infections in cats.

This is an injectable flea control product that will sterilize flea eggs for 6 months. Program is non-toxic to cats but is a key component of flea control as flea eggs account for 50% of any flea infestation problem. One female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day and 50 female fleas can lay up to 15,000 eggs per month. Program is a highly effective flea prevention product.

A spot on that deworms your cat against roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms. These are the three most common intestinal parasites of cats. This is a great alternative for those cats who do not take pills well.
