We, at Park Place Veterinary Hospital, recommend year-round flea prevention for both dogs and cats.

Selecting a product for your Pet
Only buy products that are labeled for use on the age, weight, and species you will be using them on (dog, cat, etc.). Cats, in particular, are very sensitive to drugs and chemicals – be sure to read all labels carefully!
We do not recommend, and cannot guarantee, products sold at pet supply stores. Many of our clients have reported unreliable results from these products.
Whether you prefer to give your pet(s) chewables, topicals or a collar, there is something for everyone, and long-term protection is key as fleas can survive, and reproduce, through the winter months in your home.
Fleas have a complex, 4-stage life cycle. To stop the problem of flea infestation, pet owners must control the fleas on their pet and in their home, addressing all stages of the life cycle.
FLEA CONTROL IN YOUR HOME, CAR, AND YARD
Immature fleas (eggs, larvae, and pupae) are hard to see and may thrive in huge numbers in many areas of your home, such as inside the car and in your carpets, beddings, and cracks in the floor. Only about 10% of the flea populations (mainly the adults) are on your pet.
Neglecting the population of fleas that are not on your pet will ensure that the flea problem will continue and worsen over time.
- To treat your home:
- Vacuum daily until you are sure all of the fleas are gone from your pet’s environment and on your pet. Remember to replace the vacuum bag to get rid of all fleas within your home.
- Wash all bedding, clothing and removable furniture covers.
- Spray with a premise flea spray which kills adult fleas on the furniture, carpet, and flooring, and prohibits eggs from hatching. We recommend Siphotrol, which can be purchased at Park Place Veterinary Hospital. Flea “bombs” or foggers are not as effective as a spray since they just shoot up in the air and settle down onto flat surfaces, not reaching under tables, counters or furniture.
If your pet is missing in the Monadnock Region and you would like us to upload a lost pet listing on our website, please email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include the following: Recent pet photo, pet name brief description, location, and date when last seen, and who to contact if the pet is found. Please state if your pet is microchipped or not.
We will also place a flyer on our entryway bulletin to help you locate your pet.
Owners with microchipped pets should also report their pet missing to the microchip registry. Those pets who have been microchipped at Park Place Veterinary Hospital should defer to HomeAgain Microchip.
Additional missing pet information may be submitted by the owner to Craigslist in the lost and found section. Other online databases for missing pets may exist.
The list below will be updated as information is sent to us. If your situation has changed and your pet returns home, please let us know so your lost pet listing may be removed.

Helping Paws Fund
Sometimes animals come to us requiring care but have unusual circumstances that may necessitate outside funding and at the discretion and consensus of our staff, the Helping Paws Fund is utilized. Helping Paws Fund is a fund managed by Park Place Veterinary Hospital.
Please help us care for animals in need by contributing to our Helping Paws Fund! Your contribution helps us provide veterinary care to animal victims of neglect or abuse, injured or abandoned animals found by Good Samaritans, and victims of unforeseen financial hardship.
- The purpose of the Helping Paws Fund is to offset the costs of medical care provided by Park Place Veterinary Hospital for certain abandoned or qualified animals in need. The fund is NOT to offset the debts from delinquent accounts caused by unpaid services, nor to create “discounts” to pet owners.
There are various funding sources contributing to Helping Paws Fund to provide for the medical care of stray or abandoned animals.
- In 2013, one of our long-time clients passed away. His name was Eugene “Gene” “Bupp” Snow. Instead of flowers, they asked that donations be made, in his memory, to the Helping Paws Fund at PPVH. Through their thoughtfulness, generous contributions arrived from sources outside our regular client pool.
- Contributions may be made by the general public directly to PPVH’s Helping Paws Fund (not tax deductible) OR they may be made to our hospital through the American Veterinary Medical Foundation’s (AVMF’s) Veterinary Care Charitable Fund (VCCF), which will provide each donor with a letter that may be used for tax-deduction (please speak with your accountant for advice on making tax-deductible contributions.)
- Additionally, PPVH also contributes to the Helping Paws Fund in memory of certain patients of the hospital that have died. Occasionally PPVH may host an event to raise funds for the Helping Paws Fund.
(You can offer your contributions to our hospital directly by selecting Park Place Veterinary Hospital in the drop-down menu, or to the “Greatest Needs Fund,” which is a grant that can be applied for use by any participating animal hospital the US.
Is it tax deductible?
It’s a yes and no answer:
- Contributions made through our hospital directly towards the PPVH Helping Paws Fund are not tax deductible.
- However, your contributions CAN be made to AVMF’s Veterinary Care Charitable Fund (VCCF) online in the name of our hospital to receive your letter which will serve as a tax receipt toward the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund.
How can you contribute?
- To contribute directly to the Helping Paws Fund, drop-off or mail to PPVH, 92 Old Homestead Hwy, N. Swanzey, NH 03431. Checks may be made out to Park Place Veterinary Hospital with “Helping Paws” in the subject line.
- To contribute using the VCCF fund, visit www.avmf.org/ways-to-give/
- Select Park Place Veterinary Hospital for a direct contribution to our hospital.
Thank you for your generosity!
Thanks to the Helping Paws Fund, PPVH has been able to rescue several animals in need and help them find loving homes.
