Parasite Prevention and Control

Cats are susceptible to several parasitic infections, several of which can infect people in addition to animals. Therefore, parasite prevention is not only important for the health of your pet, but also for the health of your family.

  • Fleas and Ticks.  Fleas and ticks are troublesome parasites of the skin. Flea and tick prevention is important because these pests not only cause problems with the skin, but they also possess the ability to transmit several diseases to the cat. Fortunately, we have many safe and highly effective products that will treat and prevent flea and tick infestations.
  • Heartworm.  Cats get heartworm, too. Heartworm is a worm that resides in the heart and lungs of infected cats. It is transmitted by mosquitoes that transmit heartworm larva from cat to cat when bitten. These larvae then develop into adult worms that over time cause heart disease and respiratory problems in cats. Fortunately, this is a preventable disease, and there are several excellent monthly heartworm preventatives available at Animal Medical Center of Fort Sheridan. These products, when administered year-round, provide outstanding protection against heartworm disease. Our team will help guide you through which product and prevention plans are best suited for you and your cat!

These professionals have been like Angels to our family. They have taken care of our sweet old boy Karma. They have given tirelessly of themselves during the pandemic and I am so happy we found a Vet that I truly trust and appreciate. 10/10 would reccomend!

The doctor was very helpful and friendly. He was able to provide me with education about my dog in a very easy to understand manner. The price was great and the location is amazing. I will definitely be taking my dog here while we are stationed in Illinois.

Jeff Kordell is the best vet! I have been a pet owner for about two years now. When I first got my dog I went to 7 different vets before a friend told me about AMC. This office is an hour away from my house and is SO worth the drive! The office is very clean and the staff is wonderful. If you are looking for a vet that truly loves animals, look no further!

This is the only place I ever would trust my animals- Dr. Kordell has taken care of my dogs like they are his own. Dr. Spector has two of my dogs in her care for congestive heart failure and the whole team, including the techs are amazing.
