Our Volvo station wagon driving the ice road between Cochrane and Moose Factory – 2019

Last year we managed to break a shock on our Volvo station wagon as we made the drive up to Moose Factory and Moosonee.  I think this year Meghan, Julie and I will take the train up!!


Ticks Ticks Ticks

Ticks, Ticks, Ticks! Wow, have our dog and cat patients ever encountered so many ticks?! We know it’s stressful with the risk of Lyme disease in the area now, but the risk to your pet is extremely low if the tick is removed within 48hrs of biting. If you think the tick has been feeding longer than this before you discover the nasty little thing, remove the tick and do one of two things:
1. bring the tick in for identification ($10) and if it’s a black-legged tick (deer tick), we’ll perform a blood test ($80) on your pet in 8 weeks to make sure they aren’t infected.
2. submit the tick to our laboratory and test the tick to see if it’s a carrier of any of the 4 tick-borne diseases ($185).

Obviously the best advice we can give is to get your dog or cat on a tick preventative, like Simparica. Give us a call or come on in and our staff can help get your pet on a tick and flea preventative that gives you peace of mind. (please note: provincial regulations require us to have seen your pet within the past 12 months in order to sell medication, including parasiticides).

If you want to be sure your dog hasn’t been exposed to tick-borne diseases over the season, we’d recommend a 4Dx blood test which screens for Lyme, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis, and Heartworm disease (mosquito-borne).
