New tick-borne virus discovered in humans!

A new tick-borne virus has been discovered in people. Be sure that your pet is protected from ticks: remember that not only can they get these diseases, but they can carry the ticks in the house…….I HATE TICKS!

Ticks are out in high numbers this year!

Use your Frontline! If you have questions about tick prevention – please ask. Remember, ticks carry Lyme Disease and Anaplasmosis (in addition to several other diseases).

This tick was found attached to a patient’s tongue (thanks for the update Minnesota Spay and Neuter Program).

It’s Deer Tick Season – be sure that your pet (and you) are protected.
