The Cherry Blossoms Aren’t Our Only Early Visitors This Spring

The Cherry Blossoms Aren’t Our Only Early Visitors This Spring

The trees are budding and blooming, weeds are sprouting and bugs are emerging, including insects that affect our pets such as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes that can transmit heartworm.

One of the advantages of a cold winter is that insects that affect our pets die off in great numbers in frigid temperatures. The warm weather coupled with high moisture has created an early season for bugs, and as they multiply over the coming weeks and months pet owners should take heed and take advantage of preventative measures to keep their pets healthy. Many veterinarians are recommending that these preventatives be started as soon as possible, if you do not use them year round.
