In Alberta and in the spring time, there is a crop of ticks traditionally "blooming" around. Those ticks are called Dermacentor albipictus, and may be vectors for a host of diseases such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. However, for 2018, we are watching for the arrival of new species of ticks that may carry Lyme disease, a potentially incurable and fatal disease affected our companion animals, as well as humans. Please make sure to connect with us in April regarding the status on Lyme disease in Alberta, tick "prophylaxis" is available. For dogs only :)
