Event - Coping with Pests

Solutions for You and Your Dog

Your pet is at a higher risk of contracting Lyme disease and West Nile this summer. Surveillance in Ontario indicates that populations of the ticks have become established and are continuously increasing and spreading. According to the Ontario Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario, this number has a good chance of growing due to global warming. Flea, blackfly, mosquito and tick populations in our province are getting larger, bringing with them a higher risk of exposure and contracting diseases. Over 172 pools of mosquitoes have tested positive for carrying West Nile Virus.

We will discuss these threats in detail: the diseases each insect carries, the symptoms to look out for, and how likely you both are at any given time to being exposed. Believe it or not, there are various methods of protection for both you and your dog given your level of contact.

As a result of overexposure to chemical toxins, both topical and internal, we will discuss how and when natural oils and herbs can benefit you and your pet when repelling and or treating affected areas.

Education is the key to prevention. Join us for some preventative knowledge and a better knowledge of the risks that these insects pose.
