Fleas and Ticks are coming to a yard near you!

Hey Folks,

Sammy here reporting that fleas and ticks are going to be out with a vengeance this season.  And the season is starting early!  Don’t forget that your furry friends don’t like those pesky fleas any more than you do.  Ticks!  Yuck!  Not only are they ugly, but they can carry life-threatening diseases like lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.  There also is such a thing as tick-paralysis that can paralyze your furry friend from being able to walk if the wrong tick bites him or her, so please, please, PLEASE protect your pet by using a flea and tick preventive medicine.

Here’s another hint – buy your products from your veterinarian – NOT from you local box store.  You want your doctor to prescribe your drugs for you don’t you?  Would you buy your drugs based on the word of the cashier at the convenient mart?  Then you shouldn’t buy your dog or cat’s drugs based on something you pick up at a super store.  Your veterinarian should recommend your dog or cat’s flea and tick products.  Those products that you buy at WalMart, Walgreens, Lowe’s…..those can be dangerous to your pets.   Please trust your pet’s health to your vet.  After all, isn’t that why you go there in the first place?  So hurry up, the fleas and ticks are waiting – get going to your vet’s office and get some protection for your furry friends!

Stay itch-free,

Sammy
