Pet Care: Ticks


Ticks spread diseases that can be a threat to both your pet’s health and to yours. So far this summer, there’s been an increase in Illinois’ tick population, and this hour on Focus, we welcome veterinarian Sally Foote. She’ll be here to talk with host Jim Meadows about the species of ticks that live in Illinois, what diseases they spread and how to protect your pet from them. We’ll also talk about the best ways to remove a tick from your dog or cat. Of course, we also welcome your questions no matter what breed or species you love and care for.
