Ticks get worse every year, especially in our area. Ticks, like fleas, are a nuisance that can cause a lot of issues with your pet. Not only that, but they can crawl off of your pet and make their home on you. Aside from being a little creepy, Ticks are also disease carriers. They can infect their host with Lymes disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis, and a whole bunch of other diseases. The best way to protect your pet and yourself from Ticks and the diseases they carry is to keep your furry family member on regular prevention. We recommend Tick prevention all year round. There is also a vaccination for dogs specifically to protect against Lyme's disease. This vaccination can be given with your dog's yearly vaccinations.
