We are seeing an uptick in cases of Dogs testing positive for Lyme Disease! Fall is the time when most dogs become infected from the bite of a deer tick which are very active until the ambient temperature dips below 37 degrees. We stock a full range of Flea and Tick products that are effective at minimizing the risk from deer ticks, in addition vaccinating your dog for Lyme disease is available as well!
Why do our pets need surveillance screening?
Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off color or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every 6 months as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.
Use the age chart below to find your pets age in "people" years and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life.
We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pet's live longer, healthier lives.
