Parasite Prevention

Parasite Prevention Plan for Pets
While keeping our clients and teams protected

The arrival of warmer weather means the arrival of ticks and fleas. To help your furry family member remain free of these unwelcome guests, let’s get them protected!  

Although our community is faced with an unprecedented situation, our team at South Shore Veterinary Services has taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing the necessary care and prevention treatment for your pet.

We are offering a new Parasite Prevention Plan for Pets – a plan designed to provide your pet with parasite prevention while practicing physical distancing during these challenging times. 

Check out which of these options is best for you and your pet. If you are unsure, call or email us and we can discuss which solution is best.

Option 1

When to pick this option: "My pet is healthy and I want to ensure it stays that way."

This option is best for: Clients whose pets have visited our hospital in the last 24 months. 

  1. Call or email us to provide updates or changes to your pet’s health.
  2. Place order for medication via phone or email.
  3. Pick up medication from the hospital. Instructions will be provided on how you can administer the medication.

All pick-ups at our hospital are "no-contact.” When you arrive, come to our side door and ring the buzzer. We will be there to assist you.

Option 2

When to pick this option: "My pet is generally healthy, but I have a few concerns."

This option is best for: Clients whose pet would benefit from a virtual check-up with a veterinarian, or if your pet has not been to our hospital in over 24 months.

  1. Click on the “Telehealth” button on the left navigation menu. Follow the steps to create an account or to log in 
  2. Book a consultation via phone or video
  3. The veterinarian will connect with you to discuss your pet’s health. You will receive a prescription for seasonal medication to be picked up at the hospital. The doctor will also discuss any additional recommendations related to your pet’s health (including a contactless visit if necessary).
  4. Pick up medication for your pet. Instructions will be provided on how you can administer the medication.

All pick-ups at our hospital are "no-contact.” When you arrive, come to our side door and ring the buzzer. We will be there to assist you.


For your parasite prevention inquiries, please send us an email at info@southshorevetservices.ca, or call us at 902-543-5602Due to higher than normal call volume, you may get our on-hold queue message, but we will be with you as soon as possible. Email responses may take up to 48 business hours.

Our regular methods may have changed, but our goal remains the same – to ensure our furry friends continue to stay healthy and protected so you can enjoy their snuggles all year long.

For regular updates on our hours and visit protocols, please follow our social media platforms.

Sincerely,

Your dedicated team at South Shore Veterinary Services

Testimonial

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I wanted to thank you again for your help last Friday. There are many animals on my farm. I love them all but I was particularly fond of little Gabby. It was only a couple weeks ago we saw her rolling in the dirt and so delighted with herself and I remember how she loved to lay on Jeff's chair and bat the tail of our other cat as she walked by. I had hoped she could have experienced more of these joys in her life.
    Your skill in diagnosing and presenting her case and your compassion in helping me understand what was best for Gabby was very much appreciated."
