Are you ready for tick season?

Tick season can last about 7 months of the year! Ticks start to appear in +4 temperatures. Most of the ticks that have been submitted for testing from our area are American Dog Ticks (Also known as Wood Ticks) but a few found are the Blacklegged Ticks (also known as Deer Ticks). The ones we are more concerned about are the Blacklegged Ticks, although more commonly found in British Columbia they have been known to migrate here;  these are the ones that have the potential to carry the bacteria that can cause Lyme Disease. Fortunately we can vaccinate our canines against this potential harmful disease. If you tend to travel to highly wooded or grass areas, live on a farm or take your furry friend camping this is an excellent prevention we have available. The bacteria is often transferred to the animal if the tick is attached for more than 2 to 3 days so using a parasitiside or repellent such as Nexguard, Bravecto or Advantix is also a great preventative. If you have any questions regarding these products please call us at 306-934-8288. If you find a tick please bring it in to us as well and we can send it off for a study with no charge to you.



Lyme Disease is caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium and is spread by infected ticks. It can be very difficult to observe the signs as they are not always obvious, symptoms can include:
  • Stiff walk with an arched back
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fever, lack of appetite, and depression
  • Superficial lymph nodes close to the site of the infecting tick bite may be swollen
  • Lethargy (tiredness)
  • Painful joints/lameness-can be seen as "Shifting-Leg Lameness"
  • Renal Failure-vomiting, diarrhoea, lack of appetite, weight loss, increased urination and thirst, and abnormal fluid buildups
  • Heart abnormalities are reported, but rare
  • Nervous system complications (rare)

Treatment consists of antibiotics for extended periods of time as an outpatient unless in renal failure (then may need to be hospitalized). Some cases even with the antibiotics the infection can reoccur at a later time and still cause damage. The best medicine is prevention!

VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Shares Why It's Important To Spay Or Neuter Your Pets

Keeping your pet healthy is the #1 priority of VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Saskatoon. VCA Frontier Animal Hospital offers Saskatoon pet owners an affordable dog & cat spay and neuter solution and full veterinary services. Their team are not only caring and compassionate, but they show continued dedication to the cause where they continue to offer an affordable solution to pet care, in this full service Saskatoon vet clinic. From the first joyous experiences of a new puppy or kitten, to the final loving moments with a beloved senior pet, they are with you every step of the way.

Spaying and Neutering your pet has numerous positive effects! 



Here are just a few:

1) By spaying your female pets, especially before their first heat cycle, it decreases the risk of uterine infections and mammary tumors.

2) For males it significantly reduces the risk of testicular cancer and prostate issues.

3) Reduces the urge to roam to find a mate when the sexual hormones are reduced. Which reduced the chance of pets becoming lost or injured while outdoors, because they tend to stay closer to home.

4) Females will not go into heat; which can leave a mess around your home, or your female cats to be extremely vocal.  

5) Males will be better behaved by not "marking their territory" and become more human family orientated. It reduces the testosterone which can help with dominance and territory aggression issues as well. 

6) It is highly cost effective compared to the cost of having and caring for a litter of babies. 

7) Spaying and Neutering helps the pet overpopulation problem. Which in turn reduced the number of unwanted and stray pets. Strays can have an effect on the community by destroying local fauna, pray on wildlife and cause traffic accidents. 

A common myth you hear about spaying and neutering are that your pet will become overweight. It is true that by altering them they do have a slower metabolism and are less likely to roam, but by watching their food intake and exercising regularly you can control their weight gain quite easily.
