Increase in lyme-infected ticks

There is expected to be a significant increase in lyme-carrying ticks in the area this spring and summer. If your dog is staying in Brooklyn, be sure you are giving a tick preventative (Nexgard, Bravecto, Vectra) year-round. If your dog will be spending time outside of the city where there are wooded areas, we recommend adding a tick collar, such as Seresto, and the lyme vaccine should be strongly considered as well. Please contact us if you have any questions about tick disease and prevention!
