Ticks Are More Than A Pest

Lyme disease is spreading. Dr. Richard Goldstein, medical director of the famed Animal Medical Center in New York City, says we can actually do more to protect our pets than we can do to protect ourselves from Lyme.

Both of Lyme and Ehrlichia may offer only subtle signs or more serious signs but may be misdiagnosed. (The same test also screens for heartworm disease, carried by mosquitoes).
