      Prevent Lyme Disease

      More and more pets are coming down with Lyme disease. Lyme disease is caused by a kind of bacteria that is transmitted from an infected deer tick. When the tick attaches to the dog or cat, the bacteria enters the bloodstream and can cause many problems.

      If you notice behavior changes in your pet, schedule a vet checkup.

      • keep weeds under control to limit the spread of ticks
