Summer can be hard on pets. Imagine wearing that much fur in this heat. No thanks. To make matters worse, summer is tick season, and this summer’s tick season is particularly bad. Being hot, covered in fur, and getting your blood sucked? That’s just untenable. Just thinking about ticks on your good boy or girl probably sends you spiraling into a dark, angry place. We don’t blame you--ticks are gross! That’s why we put together some tips on how to keep them away from your furry friend this summer. Remember: these steps can’t replace anti-tick ointment. Always apply your vet’s recommended anti-tick product, and then follow these steps. We gotta do all we can for our panting pals, after all.
