Ticks can carry a variety of diseases that can be detrimental to your pet’s health including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and Ehrlichiosis among others. Our area in particular is at high risk for Lyme disease. One in 7 dogs in our area test positive for Lyme disease.
Deer ticks that carry Lyme disease are incredibly small and often times go unnoticed on your pet. Ticks are commonly picked up by pets in areas with shrubs, long grass, trees, and can even be carried on mice. To help prevent these diseases in your pet, you can perform regular tick checks, steer clear of areas with long grass and shrubs, have your pet tested and vaccinated, and use tick preventative monthly.
