Fleas and Ticks
Summer is prime flea and tick season. It is important to replace your Saresto collars on schedule or to use a preventative medication like Frontline or a combo medication like Trifexis for fleas and heartworm.

There is a new vaccination out that covers both H3N2 and H3N8 – this will be a 2 shot series.

Some dogs have no problem with the sight and sound of fireworks if they’ve been desensitized — hunting dogs, for example, grow used to the sounds and smells of hunting rifles and gun powder. Most dogs, however, are not used to these things, so the Fourth of July can be a particularly stressful holiday for dogs and their humans alike.
