March 1st 2017 Elmira’s daytime high reached 12 degrees Celcius! Yes I was excited I didn’t have to endure the battle of the snowsuits for my two young girls but another thing it brings up is new recommendations regarding Tick prevention. Over the last few years, Dr. Hirzer and I have been seeing an increase in Tick cases and are encouraging using prevention against them for dogs that live an active outdoor lifestyle. Ticks can become active at temperatures starting at 4 degrees and with predicted day time highs of 10 degrees again next week we are recommending starting prevention now in March and continuing until November.
