You may have seen in the news recently that there is an epidemic in Northern Michigan and it is all due to Ticks. Ticks are pesky little creatures that can attach to you or your pet and can transmit Lyme disease. These parasites will attach and then burrow their head into the skin while they feed on blood. This time of the year is very problematic because the baby ticks are out and can be as small as the tip of a pen, making them very hard to find, especially in fur! Be sure to check your pet daily for ticks and if one is found call us immediately. Tune in for the rest of the posts for this month all about ticks!
