Dear Dr. Schelling,

Should I be concerned about fleas and ticks this spring and summer?

– Kelly

Dear Kelly,

Spring and summer are great times of the year to spend outdoors with your dog but you should be on alert when it comes to fleas and ticks.

The more time your dog spends outside, the greater the chance your best friend will get fleas or ticks and bring them into your home. To learn about the signs of an infection and measures you can take to control fleas and ticks, read my in depth article, DANGER OF TICKS AND FLEAS FOR DOGS.
