THE TICKS AND MOSQUITOES HAVE ARRIVED!
Ticks and mosquitoes can be especially bothersome to our pets this time of year. In addition, some ticks carry Lyme disease and some mosquitoes carry West Nile Virus, both which can affect your pets' health. In western Canada, Lyme disease is more established in southern parts of BC.
Be sure to regularly groom and check your pet to help identify ticks.
