Prevent Against Ticks!
Even though the weather is a bit colder, ticks are out in full force. They are most active in this cooler weather.
4 things ticks don't want you to know:
- They can now be found in many areas across Canada
- They start looking for a blood meal when the temperature reaches 0-4°C
- They can transmit diseases-such as Lyme Disease-by feeding on pets and people
- The best time to start protecting your pet is before exposure
We have seen an increase in the number of ticks in the Petawawa area over the last couple years. Schools are even seeing them on students. Protect your pets, and your children. Come in and talk to us about what prevention is best for your pet!!
