Should pets have extended steroid treatments?

Pet Health Alert:  Even with all the colder weather, we are still seeing ticks on pets on an almost daily basis. Ticks are becoming more aggressive and more diseased than ever before.  Pet owners and veterinarians must work together to wage war on this growing threat to the health of pets and people.  A reliable, veterinary-quality tick control product must be used all year.  Please do not skip this month or next.  It is just not worth the risk.  Also, ask your veterinarian about back-up options like vaccination or routine blood screening for subclinical Lyme infection.
