TICK AWARENESS 

Spring is just around the corner.. Thank goodness!
Ticks and tick-borne diseases are now established in Ontario and its is important that people understand how to protect themselves and their pets. Although the past two months have been relatively cold, we still have been removing ticks from our patients because of the fluctuating temperatures. Ticks begin to move and search for a host as soon as the temperature reaches 4 degrees. Our changing climate means that we now need to be aware of tick prevention and the dangers of ticks year round.

Why year round now?
1) Ticks do not die under the ice ans snow - they are just there lurking, and waiting for the temperature to rise above 4 degrees again.
2) Once again we still had days at or above 4 degrees during January and February this year!

Cats may have a tick attach on them but they do not develop Lyme disease unlike people and dogs. Using prevention on your cats decrease the risk of live ticks falling off in your home and potential exposure for your family.

The warm weather not only increases the number of ticks , it also means fleas are back as soon as it hits 13 degrees! Luckily the prevention we use to kill a tick that may attach to your dog or cat will also kill those pesky fleas!

When to start tick and flea prevention?
NOW if you haven't already come in for your pets medication.

What to use?
You have the option of chewable tablets, topical prevention or a combination of both. We can help you decide on what is best for you and your pet.

Wellness Seasonal Blood Testing Starts March 1st. The 4DX blood test checks to see if your dog was exposed to the 3 tick-borne diseases (Lyme, Anaplasmosis and Erhlichia) AND heartworm last year.

Remember - no drug or vaccine is ever 100% effective, but as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Without preventative medicine, the potential treatment costs will skyrocket.

Contact us to book your appointment or if you have any questions about what is the best plan for you and your pet at your earliest convenience.

Dr. Angela's Message

A message from our veterinarian:

Hello Everyone! I am so pleased to now be open and be able to provide medical and preventive health care for our pets in York and Durham Regions!  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your pets health please call, email us, or just drop by, we would be happy to hear from you. Along with providing high quality care for you pets I have a strong background in public health, including completion of a Master of Public Health degree in 2012. This may cause you to scratch your head but veterinarians are highly trained in zoonotic infectious diseases (diseases transferred between animals and humans). It is this knowledge that allows us to be an important resource and sometimes important part of your health care team. Drop by and ask me how and why this important to you and your family. 

 

 

Echinococcus is now here in Ontario!
Echinococuss is a potentially nasty parasite that can infect both animals and humans!

We've renovated the old convenience store at the corner of Mount Albert Road and McCowan Road into a new veterinary clinic. It was a long process but the vision was there and the final outcome is superb!
