Now that the rain has come, so do the ticks. As a Professional dog walker, I have seen my fair share of ticks. The dogs pick them up on our Adventure hikes and even just on our dog walks. Please be sure to use some tick preventative on your dog to protect against these awful bloodsuckers!! You can call any vet hospital for a recommendation, or just visit your local pet store. Here are some links to help you out. I have included a holistic alternative for a Vet Hospital as well.
