Mosquitoes Are Buzzing and Biting; Our Pets Aren't Immune

Mosquitoes spread more disease to people than any creature on the planet. And our pets aren’t immune to their attack – not only potential for carrying potentially deadly heartworm disease, their itch is as uncomfortable for our pets as it is for us. That’s why veterinary parasitologist Dr. Byron Blagburn, distinguished professor Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, a founder of the Companion Animal Parasite Council wants us to use products that will deter mosquitos from biting our pets in the first place.
