Working With Great Veterinarians

Great veterinary care is about more than simply finding someone who is looking for patients. In addition to finding a professional who really seems to care about your animal, you also need to focus on the fact that your pet has feelings too, and they need to feel comfortable with the situation. I started thinking about different ways to identify better veterinarians a few months ago, and within a few short weeks, we had found a professional that we felt really great about working with. They were kind, thorough, and incredibly affordable. Check out this blog for awesome tips that will help you to find a great pet healthcare provider.

4 Great Ways To Protect Your Dog From Ticks This Year

Ticks really come out strong in the spring and summer. Ticks are terrible not only because they suck blood from your pets, but because they can also carry and infect your dog with various infections and diseases. That is why you want to have a detailed plan to fight back against ticks.

Take Care of Your Property

First, make sure that there are not a lot of places on your property for ticks to hide. Mow your lawn at least once a week and keep the grass short. If you have woodlands around your property, mow or weed whack the growth to keep it low as well.

Trim your trees and bushes, and keep them from becoming too thick. Be sure to prune and trim low-lying branches.

You can also apply a tick repellent to your yard, which should help keep ticks away from your property.

Protect Your Dog

You are going to want to invest in some direct protection for your dog. There are lots of different types of direct protection that you can invest in. You can put a tick collar on your dog, which will help keep ticks away from your dog's head.

You may want to get a medication that your dog from your vet. These medicines are often the strongest protection against pests and protect your pet's entire body, not just their head and neck area, from infection.

Check Your Dog

In the spring and summer, you should make checking your dog for ticks part of your daily routine. Spend a few minute checking behind your dog's ears, neck, and behind their legs for ticks. Brush your dog's coat once a day and keep an eye out for ticks.

If you spot a tick, make sure that you can remove the entire head and body; you don't want to leave any part of the tick behind in your dog. Checking your dog for ticks is a great back-up step that will allow you to act fast if a tick gets on your dog and will allow you to watch for signs of an infection.

Get Your Dog Vaccinated

Finally, make sure that you get your dog vaccinated against Lyme disease. Lyme disease is one of the most common diseases that ticks can transmit to your dog. Getting your dog vaccinated for Lyme disease will ensure that if your dog gets bite by a tick, they are able to fight back against the disease that the tick may transmit to them.

Protect your dog from ticks by making your yard a less appealing place for ticks to hang out, getting your dog medicated against ticks, checking your dog daily for ticks, and getting your dog vaccinated against Lyme disease.
