Preventives and Vaccines
There are numerous products and medications available to keep ticks off your dog. Some veterinarians suggest putting a topical medication or tick collar on your pet; some will also vaccinate to prevent Lyme disease in dogs. Regardless, your veterinarian can recommend the preventive that’s best for your dog and effective on the ticks found in your area. While you’re at the clinic, be sure to schedule your dog’s annual screening for the most powerful approach to reducing risk of exposure to ticks and disease.
