It’s March—springtime is around the corner! Our winter here in New England has been pretty mild and we are seeing the effects of that now. We have seen more ticks than ever throughout these warm winter days and Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichia did not take a break this season! It is so important to keep your pet protected from these diseases by preventing the ticks that spread them from feeding on your pet. We also can’t forget about the ever so annoying flea!
It’s that time of year again. Love, hugs and chocolate are on everyone’s mind. For your pet, the first two come out way on top! (Chocolate is a no-no, but you already knew that!)
Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats, affecting 78% of dogs and 68% of cats over the age of three. Although most dogs and cats will develop some sort of dental disease, small dog breeds, such as Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Dachshunds and Toy Poodles, are more prone to developing periodontal disease than larger breeds.
