Pet Owners Are Alarmingly Unaware About Flea and Tick Dangers, Study Reveals

A study shows that many pet owners are often unaware of the dangers of flea infestations, ticks and Lyme disease. Fleas and ticks are parasites that can easily latch onto our Pals and spread illness. Staying on top of flea and tick preventatives year-round is the best way to avoid potential dangers and infestations.

The study found that despite the dangers of flea infestations, ticks and Lyme disease, many pet owners may not be as knowledgeable—or as prepared—as they think.

Preventive Pet Healthcare

As part of National Pet Week, today's theme is "Love your pet? See your vet!" Staying on top of wellness exams, yearly fecal tests and vaccines are just the beginning when maintaining your Pals' health and if the case, detecting an early diagnosis.

In pet healthcare, the cost of prevention - wellness care - is often a fraction of the cost of treating disease or health problems.

Springfield veterinarian recommends extra dog vaccines

Now that it will be getting warmer, there's more chances to take your dogs out! Whether taking them on walks, dog parks or dog beaches, it is important to remember to keep your Pals up to date on Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella but also to go beyond just the required vaccines. We also urge you to consider vaccinating against Influenza and Leptospirosis.

With warmer temperatures on the way, we asked local veterinarians what dog owners needed to know before heading out with their furry friends.

In honor of National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day on April 30, Helena Wayt, a veterinary student at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, explained some of the major reasons to adopt a pet from a shelter.

Please, Santa Barbara people, share! Somebody saw a lady taking Boyo in a grey metallic car. Our hearts are broken. We want him back, and won't stop until he is home where he belongs. Please, return him, no questions asked. He is a big gray tabby, very friendly, usually rolls over to say hi. He is around 3 years old and microchipped. We are heartbroken. If you have seen him, please respond by email to this ad. He was last seen on June 19th around Salinas Place and Oak (East Side). There are two little girls waiting to see their friend again.
