Each Tuesday, on Facebook, we will post fun and informative facts about ticks, tick-borne diseases, information about the tick season, products available for tick prevention and more!
Each Friday we will post about the flea. We will give you general information about fleas, details about how one teeny flea can lead to an infestation, and how you can prevent or get rid of fleas.
Why are these topics so important?
We are about to enter the Northland's flea and tick season and everyone should be informed about these creepy-crawley's. Not only are these blood-suckers gross but in our area 1 in 11 dogs test positive for Lyme disease (check out an interactive map here) and infestations of fleas can take MONTHS to completely clear up!
Preventing fleas and ticks BEFORE there's a problem is the best solution, so the more you know, the better!
Check our Facebook page on Tuesday's and Friday's for your weekly Tuesday Tick Topics and Flea Fact Friday's or stop into the clinic for more information!
