Getting Real with Dr. Reese, 5th Edition

Are ticks still a problem this time for year?

We received a call from a panicked owner that their dog was covered in ticks!!!! 

We told the owner to bring the dog in for an exam.

*Pictured on the right are the dogs front legs.

No, those black dots are not blanket fuzz they are TICKS!!!

Ticks can carry a few different disease. 

Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis

*The picture below is a paper towel covered in ticks after we picked them off the dogs legs.

We also sent Bravecto home with the owner. Bravecto is a three month flea and tick tablet.
