TICKS: just another perk of living in Wisconsin!

Wood ticks are annoying pests that can be picked up by our pets outdoors, become attached , and are basically gross when they feed on Fido's blood. Deer ticks, on the other hand, can transmit some nasty diseases to our dogs. There are 3 basic steps to controlling and preventing Lyme disease, ehrliciosis, and/or anaplasmosis transmission from ticks, and IN ORDER of importance they are:

1. Check your dog every day for ticks (and remove them, duh!)

2. Use a tick control product, such as new Nexgard (once a month tablet) or Frontline Plus (once a month topical), according to the package instructions.

3. Vaccinate your dog against Lyme disease. 

If you have questions about ticks and any of the tick-borne diseases, please call us (715-263-3003) or stop in...we can talk ticks all day long (and often do!).
