Did you know that your pet can have a tick-related disease...
and you may not even realize it?
Schedule your pet’s annual checkup today to be sure your pet is healthy!
Is your dog tired or achy after a walk? Is your cat eating less than usual? These seemingly minor changes may indicate your pet has a tick-related disease.
Ticks are tricky. Even when you check your pet for ticks they can be tough to find because they’re small and hide well in dark fur. But it’s crucial to find ticks and remove them quickly and properly. Why? Some ticks carry bacteria that cause disease (such as Lyme disease, but there are many others). And it just takes one undetected tick bite for your pet to become infected. Left untreated, your pet can become very sick and develop kidney damage. At times, these diseases can be fatal.
But there’s good news! When detected and treated early, tick-related diseases can be cured. We’re experts at tick checks and tick prevention. We also carry the Tick Twister® Pro which is an easy to use tick remover. Stop by so we can show you how easy it is to safely remove a tick from your dog, cat or horse.
So make an appointment for your pet’s annual checkup today – we’ll give them a thorough physical exam from nose to tail, checking for hidden ticks along the way. We will also talk about how to keep your pet tick-free and determine if a simple tick-borne disease-screening test is needed. Call us today and let’s keep your pet healthy!
