All of February 2019 is Dental Awareness Month
Dental disease affects up to 70% of felines and canines by the time they are 3 years old. We recommend routine teeth brushing and/or dental treats to prevent dental disease. Once dental disease has been diagnosed in your pet they will need a professional dental cleaning with a scaler and polisher just like at a human dental office. We offer those types of dental cleanings at our facility. We also have a dental drill so if a tooth needs to be extracted we can safely remove the diseased tooth. During February we will be offering 10% discount off ALL of our dental packages.

Book your dental cleaning now to take full advantage of the promotion. Spots are filling up!
March Madness – Fleas and Ticks!
Fleas and ticks are upon us. It only needs to be about 40degrees outside for the parasites to emerge and feast upon our furry loved ones. Southwest Missouri is especially bad for ticks and we have many tick borne illness that can be life threatening or life altering. It is important to keep our pets on flea and tick preventatives. The old saying “A pound of prevention is worth 5 pounds of treatment” is so true in this scenario. Luckily we have some great and very affordable products for fleas and ticks.
During March we are selling Simparica at 30% discount normal price. Simparica kills fleas before they lay eggs and 5 types of ticks. It is the only product on the market labeled for 5 tick species: Lone Star Tick, Gulf Coast Tick, American dog tick, black-legged tick and brown dog tick. Diseases such as lyme disease, ehrlichia, rocky mountain spotted fever and anaplasma just to name a few can be prevented with Simparica.
Simparica is a chewable tablet that is given once every 30 days to dogs who are older than 6 months of age. If your pet has any history of seizures he/she cannot take Simparica OR must be monitored very closely if you chose to administer Simparica. Simparica is only for dogs and not cats. Your pet must have an exam completed by Dr Amanda within the last 12 months in order to purchase Simparica. There is no minimum purchase to qualify for the discount. Even buying just a single dose you will receive a 30% discount. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

April is Heartworm Awareness month
Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitos and they damage the heart and lung tissue.
In 2016 almost 120,000 dogs tested positive for heartworms in the United States compared to 78,000 dogs in 2013. That’s an overall increase of 11.5% nationally. Missouri had the highest percentage of increase of heartworm positive dogs. Missouri alone increased almost 54% in positive heartworm disease cases from 2013 to 2016.
In February of 2018 the American Heartworm Society released the top 10 cities in the US for the highest increase in prevalence of heartworm disease cases. Springfield MO is number 6.
Veterinarians recommend heart worm preventative for every dog, every month of its entire life.
We have two convenient products at Shepherd of the Hills Veterinary Clinic: Heartgard and Proheart. They are both affordable and effective, 6 months of heartworm prevention starting at $36!
Even though heartworms prefer dogs as their host sometimes they will infect cats.
Revolution Plus is a great new product for cats that prevents, fleas, heartworms, ear mites, ticks AND BOB CAT FEVER! Revolution Plus is the ONLY tick preventative to have reliable protection against the ticks that transmit bob cat fever.
- For every dog and cat that gets 6 months of heartworm preventative in February we will donate a month of heartworm preventative to a shelter pet.
Also; every person who purchases 6 months of heartworm preventative will be entered into a drawing to win either
2 tickets to Snowflex tubing at Branson Zip Line Adventure!
2 tickets to Clay Cooper Theater!
You get to choose which drawing you want to be entered into.
By protecting your pet from heartworms you will help protect a shelter pet AND have the opportunity to win some amazing tickets to a fun local attraction
