Join the 'Revolution' and help your pet pummel parasites

For dogs and cats, parasites are a pain in the neck, back, stomach, paws and everywhere else. Fleas, ear mites, hookworms, roundworms and heartworms can cause your pet great discomfort and, in some cases, long-term health problems. Though parasites are hard to spot, the symptoms they cause are not. When your cat starts scratching or your dog begins showing signs of a parasite infection, it's time to take action.

Some parasites are easy to detect and treat while others are not. Fleas are commonly detected with the naked eye, while the symptoms of heartworm infection are usually not spotted until it's too late. Whether its ear mites, hookworms, fleas, roundworms or heartworms troubling your dog or cat, parasites must be dealt with quickly and effectively to ensure your pet remains healthy and happy.

Regular grooming sessions with your pet, as well as frequent check-ups by a veterinarian, can go a long way toward spotting and preventing parasites.If parasites do manage to make it through your defenses and attack your pet, there are treatments available. One such treatment is Revolution, developed by Pfizer.

Revolution kills adult fleas, prevents flea eggs from hatching, prevents heartworm disease, and treats and controls both ear mites and roundworms.

Relieve your pet's arthritis-related pain with Rimadyl

Aging pets can face many of the same problems as their owners. Arthritis is especially prevalent among our canine friends-as many as 11 million dogs (or 1 in 5 adult dogs) are afflicted with arthritis. Stiff joints, soreness and inflammation can cause pain, loss of mobility and declined quality of life in humans and dogs alike.

Arthritis is a degenerative joint disease that mainly affects older dogs. Symptoms of canine arthritis vary, but there are some telltale signs that many dogs exhibit. These symptoms include stiffness in the morning, hesitation to exercise, reluctance to go up or down stairs, decreased appetite and defiant behavior. Dogs that are obese are more prone to suffer from arthritis. If your dog is exhibiting any of these signs, or if you believe your dog may have arthritis, schedule an appointment with your veterinarian immediately.

It's easy for owners to dismiss signs of arthritis as symptoms of "old age." But pets can continue to lead active, vibrant lives, even in their senior years. Your veterinarian may recommend a treatment program for your dog that includes changes in diet, an exercise regiment and the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

One of the leading arthritis treatments for dogs is Rimadyl. Developed by Pfizer, Rimadyl has been proven clinically effective for pain relief associated with arthritis. More than 10 million pets have been prescribed Rimadyl. With Rimadyl, your pet is able to move about freely, running up stairs and happily jumping into the car for a ride.
