Ticks are on the prowl again!

Just a reminder that ticks are still present and are becoming active again in the autumn months.  Just today a Labrador presented with a deer tick (this tick transmits Lyme’s disease) attached and the skin was inflamed.  Ticks are carriers of many diseases some of which are Lyme’s disease, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted fever, and Ehrlichiosis.  This can make your dog very ill and in some cases cause death.  It is very important to continue your tick control program this time of year.  There are actually some ticks that live in your house year round and serve as a source of infection for your pets as well as your family so for best protection, use monthly tick control product all year long.
