Welcome To Real Estate Thursday

Welcome To Real Estate Thursday

 

Each Thursday I will focus on the market and the home buyer or seller.  We are in difficult times and folks are not sure what to do when it comes to real estate. Should I buy? Should I sell?  Are pricing going down?  Going up?

If Your Dog is Getting Bitten By Ticks, Your Preventive Measures are FAILING!

If Your Dog is Getting Bitten By Ticks, Your Preventive Measures are FAILING!

Since I’ve been taking groups of dogs out hiking in the woods, fields and mountains these last seven months, the issue of tick bite prevention has become an important topic of discussion with my customers.  This issue is far from “over” for the season as we’ve yet to have consistently low enough temperatures to put the critters into the deep freeze for a few months.  Yesterday, I had a chat with Dr. John Flood of Brackett Street Veterinary Clinic, who has taken care of my Labs for ten years, about the subject and am sharing some of his answers to my questions.

Frontline and Advantix are the two most common chemical tick protection products out there currently.  Packaging recommends application every four weeks from April through November in our area of the country.  Dr. Flood explains that ticks can’t see so they are attracted to your dog’s movement, body heat and carbon dioxide emitted as your dog runs through the woods, tall grass, etc.
