Taking my dog Sophie on a walk in the woods is something we both look forward to. We love strolling on a dirt path through the trees. But there may be danger lurking in that beautiful setting!
Danger in the Woods
While pet owners know to be vigilant against dangerous pests including ticks, fleas and mosquitos during the summer months– what many people don’t realize is that these bugs DON’T “bug off” in the fall. In fact there are some species of ticks, including the American Dog Tick and the Deer Tick are MORE active in autumn.
All About Ticks
Have you heard of the adult stage deer tick? This ticks starts the feeding activity around the time of the first frost and will latch on to large hosts (cat to human… YUCK!) any day the temp is hear or below freezing. Adult female ticks can transmit Lyme Disease as does the Blacklegged tick.
Fleas and ticks are dangerous to both pets and humans, carrying diseases including Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.
PetArmor KILLS the four major types of ticks, including those that carry Lyme Disease.

Eager to protect Sophie from ticks and fleas I applied Pet Armour. It was extremely easy– just open the package, snip the tip off the pipette, part the dog’s hair and place the tip of the pipette behind the neck and the shoulders and squeeze out the contents in one spot on the dog’s skin. It took just seconds and now I know that Sophie will be safe from some seriously scary ticks and fleas!
