Groton Vet Hospital Pet of the Month: "Molly" McDowell

Groton Vet Hospital Pet of the Month: “Molly” McDowell

Our pets are subject to mosquito-born diseases such as West Nile Virus and EEE, and the recommendations for pet protections are similar to people: Don’t let your pets out at dusk and dawn. Make sure you are using some kind of monthly flea and tick product that will repel mosquitoes (Yes! they do exist) and make sure to apply it on a 28 day cycle. Do not leave standing water outdoors that will attract mosquitoes. For indoor cats, don’t let them sit in a screened window. The mosquitoes will feed through the screen. Hope for an early hard frost!
