Summer is a great time to enjoy the great outdoors with your pet – but with ticks and Lyme disease spreading in Ontario, how can you be prepared?

On this week’s Animals’ Voice Pawdcast we interview Dr. Nicole Colapinto, Technical Services Veterinarian from Merck Animal Health. She shares with us the ways to tell the tick species apart, what their season is, and how to protect our pets.
