Ticks are expanding their range in Canada. This means the risk of pets and people being exposed to ticks and the diseases they can carry, like Lyme disease, is growing.   You have to find them before you can remove them! Ticks don’t jump. Nor do they fly or drop from trees. They climb up on vegetation and wait for an animal or a person to come close enough to crawl up on them, so they can feed on their blood (Yuck!).  Ticks can be hard to spot, especially when they are the...

Higher risk pets should be treated 3 or 4 times per... Read More

“Susie” is a nine year old spayed female Border Collie mix, who belongs to Jon and Sophie.  We became concerned when we noticed that her left eye appeared to have something growing on it.  On exam, Susie had a slightly raised, pink film covering part of the cornea (the clear part of the eye) on the left eye.  There was no evidence of trauma to the eye, no corneal ulcers, and no evidence of a foreign object under the eyelids.  The rest of her physical examination...
