Summertime Safety Tips - Bugs...Ugh

Summertime Safety Tips - Bugs...Ugh


Thanks to warm winters across North America, entomologists are predicting an explosion in flea and tick populations this summer.  Mosquitoes carry deadly heartworm disease, and intestinal parasites thrive in humid conditions.  

Make sure your dogs and cats are up to date on heartworm, flea, and tick prevention, even if they never go outdoors.  The creepy critters can easily enter our homes when we open our doors, and often hitch rides on shoes, socks, and clothing.
