This year is going to be an exceptionally bad year for ticks and lymes disease for you and your furry friend, that is why we want to mention the precautions you could take to prevent ticks and what to do to remove a tick effectively. To begin with, ticks and lymes disease will be bad this year because of the abundance of acorns two years ago, this fueled a population boom of mice last year. Ticks favorite snack are those mice in which dozens can attach themselves upon a single rodent and acquire bacteria that cause lyme disease. To remove a tick properly you should grab it as close to the skin as possible to ensure you get all of it including the head, Also remember not to squeeze it because them you may increase transmission of bodily fluids. The best way to kill it is to put it in rubbing alcohol or tick spray, you could burn and squash it after it is off the body, but by doing that you are making it impossible to identify the breed of tick after it is dead. Later watch out for swollen lymph nodes, joint discomfort, fever, and swelling.
The Cortese family have been long time customers and have had a pretty rough year starting with the passing of the family patriarch, Mr Cortese, and now little Chewie. Chewie had been a grooming customer for over a decade and although he had become increasing fragile with each visit, he still had a little vinegar left in him while trimming his face. We had to laugh at his age and size and still being a little tough guy! I know Joanne will miss him terribly and we will miss Joanne showing up in her pajamas to drop him off and transforming into a fashionista for his pick up!
