Spring is almost here, and so are some unwelcome guests...
Ticks can cause even more issues than fleas in that they carry many tick borne diseases that affect both pets and people. Deer ticks, very common in our area carry Lyme Disease. This disease is preventable in two way...first a good topical preventative for ticks should be used on our pets, and secondly a Lyme vaccine will help protect your pet should they get bitten by a Lyme Disease carrying tick. Ticks also carry various other diseases that can affect the health of our pets. Your veterinarian can give you more details on these and about the preventatives you should use.
Simple measures taken now will prevent a lot of head and heart ache down the road.
