Do you have ticks?

I’m not a physician, but I wanted to make you aware of an important study.

Researchers have recently shown that chances of finding a tick on a human doubles if they own a cat or a dog. This puts you at risk for diseases transmitted by ticks, such as Lyme disease (there are others). A friend of mine was actually just diagnosed with Lyme disease.

So what should you do?

They recommend simple things:

. Check all pets daily for ticks.

. Check all humans daily for ticks.

. Talk to your vet about serious tick control
