Fall in Minnesota means cool nights, autumn leaves and hunting season. The cool nights mean the fleas are looking for a warm place to spend the winter so it is important to continue using Parastar Plus on your dogs and Easyspot on your cats to prevent flea infestation. Hunting season means exposure to deer ticks that potentially can be carriers of Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis and Ehrilichiosis. Keep your dog protected against these diseases with Lyme vaccine and topical Parastar Plus. Be sure to check for burrs and stickers in the feet and eyes of your dog after coming in from hunting. If you are interested in putting together a first aid kit for your dog when you go on a hunting trip talk to the staff at New Ulm Veterinary Clinic or River Hills Pet Care Hospital for what is important to have in your first aid kit.
