Tick Disease in Dogs the Fall – It's Still A Threat


Cool weather may be approaching, but that doesn’t mean the threat of ticks is going away anytime soon, as Dr. Craig Prior, board member of the Companion Animal Parasite Council . Listen here from my nationally syndicated Steve Dale’s Pet World, as Prior says ticks like to give disease to dogs in the fall, particularly Lyme disease.

Pryor agrees there is an EPIDEMIC of tick disease in dogs. And, for the most part, where there is tick disease in dogs – the same is true for people.

Pryor says “We want to repel them, and also we want to kill them.” He’s also a fan of Bravecto, an oral chewable that will kill up to 12-weeks.
