Start Your Flea & Tick Prevention Today.

It's time to start prevention!

As the weather warms up, many of us are itching to spend more time outside with our furry friends. However, with warmer weather comes an increased risk of tick exposure, and tick-borne diseases can be serious and even life-threatening for our pets.

At Walnut Lake Animal Hospital, our top priority is always the health and wellbeing of your furry family members. That's why we want to remind you to stay vigilant about tick prevention this summer.

Ticks are most commonly found in grassy and heavily wooded areas, but they can also be found in urban environments. As your trusted veterinary care provider, we want to ensure you have the tools and resources you need to keep your dog safe from these dangerous parasites.

Here are a few tips for preventing tick bites:

-  We LOVE simparico trio as our #1 recommendation right now.
- Avoid walking in areas where ticks are prevalent
- Check your dog for ticks after outdoor activity
- Consider vaccinating your dog against Lyme disease

If you suspect your dog has been bitten by a tick, it's important to see your veterinarian as soon as possible.

Symptoms of tick-borne illnesses can vary, but they often include fever, lethargy, joint pain, and loss of appetite. We screen for Lyme disease with an in house test called 4dx. Also known as a heartworm test.

At Walnut Lake Animal Hospital, we offer a range of tick prevention products and treatments, as well as diagnostic testing for tick-borne illnesses.

If you have any concerns about ticks or tick-borne diseases, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for trusting us with the care of your furry family members.

Together, we can keep them healthy and happy all year long!
