Unfortunately, Lyme does not discriminate so everyone is at risk – including your family pet.
Prevention of Lyme disease is CRITICAL. Ticks can be found in ALL SEASONS & in all sorts of places both in cities and in the country. eep in mind, not all ticks carry tick-borne disease but we can’t tell by looking which ones do so this makes prevention and early diagnosis key to a healthy future for you and your young ones.
According the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), children and adolescents make up 25% of all reported Lyme disease cases.
Outdoor activities that can increase the risk of exposure (not limited to):
- Outdoor sports & games
- Playing in parks or other areas with long grass and/or low-lying brush
- Close contact with animals who may have a tick; dog parks
