Fall is upon us and with it comes allergy season for many animals.  Is your animal scratching or licking excessively?  Do they have hair loss or crusty bumps on the skin?  If so, it could be allergies and it might be time to make an appointment.  Fall is also when we see a surge in tick numbers as they become more active before the cold comes.  Fleas will still be with us until we have a killing frost, which means the temperature must drop below twenty-eight degrees for two or more hours.  Protect your dogs and cats with flea and tick preventive products.  Fleas are not only irritating, they can carry tapeworms that both dogs and cats can get.  Ticks are a bigger problem as far as disease.  They carry Lyme Disease, Rocky Mounting Fever, Tularemia and other diseased.  These are becoming more common in north central Iowa.  The Lyme vaccination is relatively inexpensive and very effective in preventing a dibilitating disease.  Vaccinations are also important for relatively common diseases like distemper and parvo.  This is where an ounce of prevention is certainly worth more than a pound of cure.  Vaccinate!
