Protect Your Pet Today.
Thrive Pet Healthcare offers quality preventive flea and tick medications in Baton Rouge, Louisiana that protect your pets from the discomfort, irritation and potential health risks of fleas and ticks.
Your pet gets fleas from being outdoors in Louisiana, or from other animals that share the same indoor spaces. Did you know that the fleas that you see on your pet are only 5% of the problem? The other 95% are flea eggs, larvae, and pupae that are in and around the areas that your pet stays, like your carpets and furniture.
Your pet can get ticks from wooded areas or places where the grass is tall. Ticks can spread serious diseases to your pet and your family, so it’s important to prevent them from attaching to your pet.
Bring your pet to your local Baton Rouge, Louisiana Thrive Pet Healthcare to have one of our friendly veterinarians examine your pet and recommend the best preventative.

Ticks Can't Jump!
While a flea is able to jump about 165x its own length, ticks cannot jump at all.
Ticks simply attach themselves to your pet which causes skin irritation and discomfort. Ticks can also spread Lyme Disease.
Prevention is cheaper!
Preventing your pet from the irritation caused by these parasites is much more affordable than treating your pet after exposure.
Not only will your pet be happier, you'll be happier too knowing you saved your pet's discomfort in proactively protecting them.
