Please note that things have changed in Southern Ontario.The Black Legged Tick and Brown Dog Tick are now a significant threat to both dogs and people. City and rural areas are affected.

      
The Black Legged Tick may carry Lyme Disease and other harmful bacteria while the Brown Dog Tick is known for it's potential to cause infestations.

There will be changes in how we are going to deal with this issue in conjunction with Heartworm and Flea prevention.
