There is a new tick-borne illness on the rise. The Powassan Virus (or POW) is a rare but very serious disease found in New England and the Great Lakes region of the United States. The POW virus is spread by the bite of an infected deer tick, the same tick responsible for the spread of Lyme disease.
There is no known test for the virus in animals. It is also unknown at this time if the disease affects pets as it does humans. Symptoms of this disease in humans may present itself as fever, vomiting, weakness, confusion, loss of coordination and seizures. This is why prevention is so important – not only for your pets, but for you and your family as well! Remember that ticks can also hitch a ride in on your pets from the outdoors.
Call us at (978) 453-1784 if you have any questions or if you need help choosing the right tick prevention product for your pet.
Our Renovations Are Complete!
The doctors and staff at Linwood Animal Hospital are excited to announce that our renovations are complete! We have an all new reception desk, exam rooms, flooring, and waiting room - including a cat-only waiting area.
We look forward to providing our loyal clients with a more comfortable experience in our new facility, while also allowing our veterinarians and staff to provide more services and better care to our patients.
Disease-Carrying Ticks on the Rise
It's such a treat when we get a warm winter here in New England, but unfortunately, ticks love it too! Without heavy snow cover, and the spring weather approaching, ticks are multiplying at an alarming rate.
Ticks can spread serious infectious diseases such as Lyme, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis and Babesiosis, to pets and people. This season, be sure to protect your pets from these little monsters! The health of your pets and family depends on it. Learn more about the rise of ticks in New England here.
At Linwood Animal Hospital, we carry and recommend Vectra 3D for dogs and Frontline for cats. Both are flea/tick preventative topical oils which you apply to your pet once a month. We also carry Bravecto, an oral preventative for dogs which protects them for up to three months.
