What a great week of weather we have been having. Sitting outside, have you noticed that we aren’t the only Wilmington and Myrtle Beach residents getting out to soak up the warmth? That’s right, bugs are here already. It happens quickly when the weather warms and the amount of precipitation we received over the winter and spring only accelerates the breeding process. Mosquitoes, fleas and ticks are a problem for us and they are also a problem for our furry family members.
We often don’t think of insects affecting our pets but they absolutely can be harmful for them as well. Mosquitoes, ticks and fleas bites are more than just a nuisance; they can each transmit vector-borne diseases to our pets. While flea presence is quickly known by the incessant scratching and chewing, ticks can remain on our pets for a lengthy period of time, transmitting Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis and even an illness known as tick paralysis. The better known heartworm disease is transmitted from mosquitoes and can be deadly if not treated properly.
