Fleas & Ticks: Fact vs. Fiction
Before you hit the dog park, beach or your local campgrounds with your favorite four-legged family member, make sure you’ve got the facts on those pesky, ugly insects that can ruin your summer before it even starts. We’ve asked Dr. Louise Murray, vice president of the ASPCA Animal Hospital, to help debunk some common myths when it comes to fleas and ticks and to share her tips for keeping your pet protected.
Bonus: Take a look at some of the ASPCA’s adoptable cats and dogs in the photos throughout the slideshow then visit their website http://www.aspca.org/adopt to learn more about these adoptable animals.
