Every year in Maine pet owners find themselves worrying about ticks and mosquitoes. In the past two years we have had 326 dogs test positive for Lyme, 145 test positive for Anaplasmosis and 9 test positive for Ehrlichiosis - All tick borne diseases!
Lyme, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, and heartworm disease (carried by mosquitoes) can be extremely dangerous to your furry friend. If you find a tick on Fluffy, you must carefully remove it. Come by our office to pick up your tick removal spoon today – it works great and you’ll never have to touch that nasty parasite!
At the Windsor Veterinary Clinic, we recommend annual heartworm/tick panel testing and monthly prevention. Many dogs exposed to heartworm or tick borne diseases do not show visible symptoms in the early stages. Annual testing is the best way to diagnose these serious diseases. The number of positive Heartworm disease cases we have diagnosed has increased by 400% in the past 12 months!
