PROTECT YOUR PETS
TICK SEASON IS IN FULL SWING!!
Ticks are external parasites that feed on the blood of unlucky host animals such as our canine companions. Like mites and spiders, ticks are arachnids. The brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and the American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis), examples of ticks that commonly affect dogs, require three feedings to complete their life cycles. Make sure your pets are protected.
FDA ISSUES WARNING AFTER 90 ILLNESSES AND 15 DEATHS REPORTED FROM DOG BONE TREATS**
The FDA has received about 68 reports of pet illnesses due tobone treats. Treats that are processed and packaged for sale as dog treats. This includes treats described as ham bones, pork femur bones, rib bones and smokey bones.
Some of the illnesses reported by owners and veterinarians include gastrointestinal obstruction, choking, vomiting, diarrhea, cuts and wounds in the mouth, bleeding from the rectum, and/or death.
The FDA says owners should avoid giving their pets chicken bones or other bones from the table and be careful of what they put in the trash can, as dogs are notorious for helping themselves to the turkey or steak bones put in there.
