Seasonal Risks…and your pet
Along with warmer weather comes more outdoor time with our pets and therefore increased exposure to seasonal risks.
Some things to consider include:
Ticks: ticks are active anytime the temperature is 4ºC and above and can transmit several tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease.
Heartworm disease transmission: Heartworm disease is transmitted by infected mosquitoes, here in Ontario we consider Heartworm season May– November.
Heartworm/Lyme disease screening
Fleas; where they come from and how to treat and prevent and them
Additional and important vaccinations based on your Pet’s lifestyle i.e. swimming, hiking, boarding etc.
