It’s Tick Season — Every Single Month of the Year
Lyme disease is a serious health threat to dogs. But new guidelines say there's much you can do to prevent it if you take the right precautions.
First the bad news. The geographic distribution of ticks that can infect dogs (and people) with Lyme disease is spreading. The Northeast has had the problem from the outset, and no area of the U.S. is completely Lyme disease-free, but the Companion Animal Parasite Control Council now says thereís going to be an increase this year, with Lyme disease making its way to areas that have not been of particular concern, like the Midwest and the Southeast.
