Fleas, ticks and mosquitos are more than just an annoyance! If given the chance to bite, these insects can transmit serious parasites and other diseases to our pets such as heartworm, Lyme disease, and more.  Ticks, for example, are actively looking to feed whenever the temperature is above 4C, and even when there is snow on the ground!   How can we keep our dogs and cats protected?  Regular examinations, vaccinations and preventative products are your best plan of action....
