I love it when things go right. But, this pooch almost had an unhappy ending. You gotta read this story.
Remember folks: ALWAYS CHECK YOUR ANIPALS – from end to end.
With summer walks, camping trips, and lots of outdoor time, remember to put your hands all over your furry loved ones to check for ticks, bites, skin problems and allergic reactions.
This reminds me of taking Stuart to the beach every Christmas.
Did you know that ticks live in pine trees? One year he was covered with ticks after we walked through a neighborhood in the pines. (I didn’t remember that he turned around to look at me in this photo. Sigh. How I miss that boy.)
Covered. He was absolutely covered. We immediately found a vet, got out the tweezers, and put Front Line on him! (But be careful when using tweezers to remove ticks – be sure to get the head out. Don’t leave it behind.)
Friends, that Shetland Sheepdog in this story was lucky. Yes. He’s one lucky pooch. Others might not be. So, please. Check your anipals for ticks.
