Pesky ticks

There’s nothing worse then ticks when you have a dog. People believe that ticks roam in the spring and summer but they love the Fall. Go pick up a crispy brown leaf and you will find a tick. 

Simon loves the outdoors and last week her was hammered was 2 ticks. He gets washed once every two weeks and he is medicated for prevention but it only curbs the problem a bit. 

Last night I noticed he is in pain. He’s not jumping much and is sleeping more… As if this was possible. This means he had an engorged tick on his skin and since pulling it off he has a small infection but it will pass. 

Keep your dogs away from leaves during the Fall.
