Flea and ticks pose danger for pets

As a reportedly higher number of ticks are being found on dogs this spring, pet owners should be proactive in protecting their furry friends.  Animals are susceptible to the hazards from certain insects in the outdoors, primarily wooded areas. Dr. Jordan Kobilca from Door County Veterinary Hospital recommends heartworm prevention year-round and that flea and tick prevention be done through at least the late fall. He suggests some tips on keeping your pet safe.



Common signs of flea and tick presence on your pet can include excessive scratching, licking or biting at the skin, hair loss, scabs, and pale gums. You can find more information on the recommended flea and tick prevention for your pet here.
