Ticks are becoming more and more prevalent in North America and are now being found in areas where ticks were previously non-existent. These parasites aren’t just a nuisance; they can cause serious—and sometimes deadly—diseases, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis and tick paralysis.
The best method for keeping ticks off your pet is by maintaining a good dog or cat tick-prevention program. Even indoor-only pets are at risk because ticks can hitch a ride inside on your clothing or shoes. Today’s tick preventives are safe and highly effective at controlling ticks and the diseases they carry. Contact us today to keep your pet protected from these blood-sucking parasites!
