The Trouble with Ticks in Plymouth Meeting, PA
In Pennsylvania and the greater New England area, ticks are a big concern for us and our pets because we have a high concentration of those that can transmit Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused primarily by the deer tick, or sometimes called the black-legged tick. This disease can cause life-limiting issues for your pet, and can affect your human family, too! The best treatment is prevention—we highly recommend tick prevention all year-round for dogs and cats. For some dogs at greater risk, like hunting dogs, we’ll also recommend the Lyme disease vaccine for an extra layer of protection. Your veterinarian will help you decide on the best parasite prevention for your pet so they stay protected from ticks, fleas, heartworms, and more!
