Keep pets safe from these dangers lurking in the grass

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month

Michigan’s beautiful wooded parks and trails are great places to spend time with our pets, but certain bugs can put a damper on the fun and cause some serious problems.

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, and both humans and pets can get the disease, which is spread via ticks.

Lyme Disease symptoms can include lameness, swollen lymph nodes, loss of appetite and fatigue.

Devan Bianco with Michigan Humane said pet owners should use flea and tick control products prescribed by veterinarians.

Bianco also talked about an adorable puppy that needs a forever home. Boo Boo is about 2 months old and was described as being a little shy at times, but very sweet.
