They're creepy, they're crawly...and they can carry diseases. Fleas and ticks are not just a nuisance, but pose animal and human health risks. They suck your pet's blood, they suck human blood, and can transmit diseases.  Some of the diseases that fleas and ticks can transmit from animals to humans (zoonotic diseases) include plague, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, bartonellosis and others.  That's why it's critical to protect your pets from these pesky parasites and keep the creepy crawlies out of your home.

Know Your Pet's Cold Weather Limits

Just like people, pets’ cold tolerance can vary from pet to pet based on their
coat, body fat stores, activity level, and health. Be aware of your pet’s
tolerance for cold weather, and adjust accordingly. You will probably need to
shorten your dog’s walks in very cold weather to protect you both from
weather-associated health risks. Arthritic and elderly pets may have more
difficulty walking on snow and ice and may be more prone to slipping and
falling. Long-haired or thick-coated dogs tend to be more cold-tolerant, but are
