May is Lyme Disease Prevention Month

As the weather gets warmer, ticks become more prevalent. Protect your pets from ticks and the risk of Lyme Disease by:

• Checking your pets for ticks once a day. Go through their fur carefully.
• Applying preventive treatment such as Advantage or Frontline.
• Trying to keep your pets out of deep brush.
• Talking with your veterinarian about vaccinating your pet for Lyme Disease.

If you do find a tick on your pet—grasp it as close to the skin as possible with tweezers, pull it off gently in a straight upward motion, and apply rubbing alcohol to where the tick was. It is important to do all you can to prevent Lyme Disease in your pets.
