Summer and Ticks Go Hand in Hand. Protect Your Pets

Monday, June 6, 2022

I’m sure all of you have heard of lyme disease. Did you know that ticks can carry and transmit other diseases as well including anaplasmosis and rocky mountain spotted fever? Regardless of where you live, you must be on the alert for ticks. Susan Little, a Professor of Parasitology at Oklahoma State University says that dogs  are becoming infested with ticks more than ever before. To protect your pet, Dr. Little recommends that you use a tick control product year round. Make sure that you keep your pet out of underbrush and other tick havens and routinely check for ticks. It may be a good idea to ask your vet about the vaccine for Lyme disease.

Keeping Flea and tick spray on hand all the time even in the winter is always a good idea but even better, be aware that ticks can cause dangerous diseases to your pets so and be alert and give them routine checkups!

Remember, pets are family!
