FLEA AND TICK SEASON IS HERE!!!!!!!
If you haven't already, we strongly recommend using flea and tick protection for your outdoor and indoor pets.
Almost every pet owner knows of the nuisance and trouble fleas can bring to their home, but what about ticks? A variety of tick species are found here in our state of Kentucky making all cats and dogs at risk for infestation. Besides local irritation and puritis around the attachment site, ticks can also carry very dangerous diseases (such as Lyme, Ehrichia, and Anaplasmosis).
Cases and risk of infection are rising across the US and are even seen here in Kentucky. As of May this year, Crossroads Veterinary Clinic has already diagnosed several cases of Lyme and Ehrichia disease. We screen for these tick born diseases at least once a year with your pets annual heartworm test.
We offer several different options for the control of fleas and ticks here at Crossroads Veterinary Clinic, including the newest and latest products to hit the market!
