With the warmer temperatures we've had this month, we will see all things creepy-crawly coming back to life. Ticks are a growing problem in our area and are a common carrier of infectious disease. Our canine companions are at a high risk of picking up these hitch hikers on walks through grassy or wooded areas, and even in our own back yards. Ticks carried into the house by your dog can also put you and your family at risk of a bite.

Thankfully, preventing tick borne disease is easy and safe through the use of monthly treatment. Ticks start questing (seeking a host) when temperatures are averaging at 4 degrees. Treatment is recommended to start in March going through the fall months until the weather grows colder again.

Please call your Vet to learn more and to find out what treatment plan is best for your dog.
