Did you know that ticks can survive in weather that is above 4 degrees! They are hearty creatures that do their best to latch onto us and our pet. Dogs can pick up ticks from other animals, humans, on walks, and of course by not being on prevention.
It is important that your dog is on prevention against ticks year around! The reason why I keep my dog on prevention year round is because of those “unpredictable winters” and summers, never knowing when the weather might spontaneously warm up or cool down. The year-round prevention of my choice is Bravecto!
