With summer finally on the horizon, now is the time to start planning your warm-weather activities! Frolicking outdoors is something we all adore when winter finally abates, pets included. Our furry friends don’t suffer quite as much as we do because of their thick fur coats, but they are probably just as excited as we are to finally spend our days outside. However, there is one thing to be aware of once the summer weather returns: Threats to your pets. Much like us, mosquitoes return to the outdoors in force as soon as the temperature becomes favorable. Mosquitoes are widely considered a nuisance to us, but to our pets, these insects pose a much greater issue.
As you may already know, we often give our dogs medicine to prevent heartworm, which can cause lethal damage to the heart. Dogs are most susceptible to these parasites, but our cats are also at risk. Mosquitoes are the main cause of heartworm in our pets, which means we need to take preventative measures to protect our furry friends. In dogs, heartworm is treatable, but there is no treatment for cats, meaning the best protection against mosquitoes is one that keeps these insects away in the first place. In most cases, heartworm populations will not reach adulthood within a cat, but the risk of severe side effects is always there. Don’t take chances with your pet’s health. The long-term consequences of a severe heartworm infection can be devastating. Your pets deserve the best as your constant friends, and we are here to ensure they live a long life unbothered by mosquitoes and the dangerous parasites they can transmit. Mosquito control is not only important for pets but also critical for humans because we can also contract diseases from mosquitoes. To reclaim your yard this summer from these insects, trust the experts at Mosquito Squad.
