Warm weather causes tick up-ticks

When the weather begins to change and the sun comes out of hiding, pesky ticks are sure to follow.

When the weather begins to change and the sun comes out of hiding, pesky ticks are sure to follow.

As the warmer months approach, it's important to increase flea and tick prevention for your precious pup. According to The Center for Disease Control, the summer months report an increase in tick bites and Lyme disease reports.

Although May's Lyme Disease Awareness Month is still a season away, it's never too early to take precautions against these bugs. Protecting your canine companion from ticks now can prevent them from itching and scratching and allow them to continue running and playing.

The CDC claimed that annually, there are over 30,000 Lyme disease cases caused by ticks. In addition to this ailment, these pests can bring about fevers, chills, aches and pains that may require professional care. It's important to care for your pup's susceptibility to tick-bites and tickborne diseases in order to avoid any unwarranted pain and suffering.
