May News

Many people have seen ticks on their pets in the last few
weeks.  Some of those ticks may be
carrying Lyme disease, which is a new and emerging threat in the area.  For more information on the signs and
symptoms of Lyme disease and its effects on pets please search the articles relating to Lyme disease on the website.

We are now offering blood testing for Lyme disease along
with heartworm in dogs.  If you have
removed a tick from your pet in the last year we recommend a test to screen for
this disease.  There is effective
treatment and vaccination available to help control this disease.  Testing clinics will be held in May, consult
the events page on the website for more info, or call to schedule an
appointment for you dog.

There are several options available for flea and tick
control in dogs and cats.  Many of the
products sold in clinic and over the counter are extremely toxic to cats, and
should not be used on a dog that lives with a cat.  Please speak to one of our excellent staff
members to determine the best product for your family members.
