Autumn's Here!

       The leaves are finally changing and the weather is starting to cool down so Fall has begun! Unfortunately this also means a resurgence of fleas and ticks. Luckily for those of us using flea and tick products year round this does not present a problem.
    For those pet parents not using preventives, tick bites can mean all sorts of diseases from Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Babesiosis, etc. In some instances these easily preventable diseases can lead to the death of a beloved family pet. Not to mention how untreated pets can unknowingly bring these disease vectors into your home and expose family members to disease.
    We all want to get out and enjoy the Autumn weather but it's important to protect our loved ones by making sure our pets are using flea and tick preventives year round.
        If you haven't joined our Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram Communities, please feel free to do so. We regularly post tips, information, on-going raffles, specials and patient pictures for everyone to enjoy! It's a great opportunity to show off your own pet and become a part of the SVA Family! We would love to see photos of your family pet enjoying summer as much as we do!
