Those Nasty Ticks


those nasty ticks

Exposing your pet to the potential risk of ticks cannot only be uncomfortable for them, but can affect
you as well. When your pet spends time in areas where ticks are prevalent, your likelihood of ticks entering your home and affecting your family increases. Contrary to popular belief, even after our first frost, ticks are still hungrily looking for a host.

There are many products on the market, such as sprays and spot-ons that you can put on your pet to keep the ticks away. Vaccinations against Lyme disease will help aid in preventing ticks. Our doctors will be able to prescribe the right treatment for YOUR pet, to provide maximum protection during these autumnal months.

By taking all of the necessary precautions, you are much more likely to steer clear of any unwanted visits from these small arachnids.

If you are concerned about your pet having exposure to ticks, or to set up a vaccination against Lyme disease, make an appointment at
