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.
