A very bad tick season is predicted for 2012 due to the early spring and dry conditions at Red Lake. Outdoor dogs and cats suffer from tick diseases, infections, and anemia due to these blood-sucking parasites. The most common diseases on our reservation are Lymes, Anaplasma, and Ehrlichia which affect joints and organs of your pet, and eventually may cause death. Ticks are a grave danger to your pet is left untreated.
90% of the dogs that come to the Red Lake Rosie's animal shelter have tick infestation and are already affected by Lymes and Anaplasmosis. We are telling Red Lake residents if have pets, it is very important to treat ticks very seriously.
We did NOT have flea and tick products at the last 2 clinics and sadly most of the animals came in with these parasites.
Life for them is misery with infestation. We can greatly improve the quality of life with a monthly application of a tick treatment.
Sincerely, Karen RLRR
