Winter Ticks & Parasite Prevention
Protect your loved ones from fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites!
With the fluctuating winter weather in Ottawa, parasite control is becoming important year-round for active pets. Ticks are out above 0 degrees C, and we reach this temperature virtually every month now. Approximately 30% of ticks in Ottawa are positive for lyme disease.With spring approaching, if your pet does not venture out far during the winter they should start their Spectra by March 1, as early warm spring weather brings a bloom of ticks. If your dog regularly goes out all winter, he/she should remain on protection year-round.
Heartworm and lyme blood testing should be performed every spring, as no prevention is foolproof!
