Risk of Lyme disease is real in Eastern Ontario

Deer ticks are active again if the number we are getting off our young Samoyed dog is any indication. Contact Vicky Cusack (613) 395 – 1929 or if you would like to buy a very effective Tick Removal Key for ten dollars. Proceeds go to support Hastings Stewardship Council. To learn more,  please watch Dr. Andrew S. Peregrine’s  very informative talk and find out how to reduce the risk to your family, and pets, of catching Lyme disease. Eastern Ontario is ideal habitat  for ticks with decidous woodland and grassland, a large population of white tailed deer, and birds migrating north from the north east US where Lyme disease is endemic.
