Although the temperature has dropped, the ticks are still around, and will be until the first frost. What's worse is that the ticks that are out in the autumn are usually adult deer ticks and much more likely to be infected with Lyme disease than the younger ticks that are out in May and June.
Pet parents should be aware that the threat of ticks and Lyme disease is still present in the Fall. If you use Frontline flea and tick prevention or a similar product, continue to use it. If you use other methods to control these pests, continue to use those methods. If you have never used flea and tick prevention products on your pet and would like to, or if you need more information, consult your pet's veterinarian for recommendations.
