We Can Protect Our Pets Against Tick Disease


Tick disease is an epidemic in America, as I described with Dr. Yasmine Mortsakis on HouseSmarts TV. 

If a dog is diagnosed with tick disease, it’s not unlikely that a family member has been exposed, which is why I began the Stop Lyme campaign in conjunction with the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Global Lyme Alliance.

I speak here with Mortsakis about how – interestingly enough – we can do more to protect our pets than ourselves against tick diseases like Lyme, particularly with some fairly new products (with innovative technology).  And she explains why it is so important to protect our dogs, as tick diseases are a serious deal.
