Flea and Tick Season

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Now that the weather is starting to warm up, some pesky parasites will come out looking for a meal.  Two of those parasites that we need to keep our furry friends safe from are fleas and ticks.

How can fleas harm pets:

*Cause our pets a lot of discomfort by biting them all day, everyday

*Flea allergy dermatitis- a very uncomfortable skin condition

*Fleas can give our pets tapeworms, an intestinal parasite

 

Ticks can transmit diseases that can lead to serious medical conditions:

Along with your dogs annual heartworm test, we also screen your dog for three of the more common tick-borne diseases in our area:

*Lyme

*Anaplasma

*Ehrlichia
