MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - With the warm weather, ticks are a frequent visitor.
The tiny creatures are especially prevalent this year and some carry Lyme Disease.
Lyme Disease comes from deer ticks. Experts say ticks are making their way toward less wooded areas, and you don't need to be deep in the woods to get bit.
"So, using a preventative, being proactive instead of reactive, in that situation is way easier for the pet owner. And way better for the pet, too. It's way more comfortable," said Mares-Z-Doats Supervisor, Kayleigh Haynen.
Mares-Z-Doats says there are several preventive tick treatments available, including collars, sprays, and liquid spot-on treatment that will help your pet this summer. There are more natural options available as well.
