Tis the Season for Tick Prevention
Date:8/1/2014

Oakdale, MN (PRWEB) August 01, 2014

Summer is here, and with it comes the season of ticks. Ticks are most active during the summer, and they can be a pain for dogs. Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota is ready to help all their customers get rid of ticks and prevent them completely.

Female ticks lay between 3,000 and 6,000 eggs in the summer, which is why they are so active during this season.

5. Call the veterinarian
6. Reward the pet for being a trooper with a treat
