Tick Season Is Here
With temperatures so up and down these days, ticks can be found year round. Give us a call to discuss the risk factor for Ticks in Ontario. As daily temperatures reach 4 degrees Celsius ( and possibly at any above zero degrees) ticks become active and therefore it is time to start your pets tick prevention. Many prevention products will also prevent fleas at the same time, another pesky parasite.
Let us recommend the right product to protect
Lyme disease is a growing concern for pets and people.
Numbers of reported Lyme positive dogs is just an indication of the issue at hand. What we need to consider is that true numbers are likely higher because not all dogs will be tested. In the photo below Idexx has indicated that in 2017 there were 1261 Lyme positive dogs, and in the past 5 years a total of 6215 in Ontario..... keep in mind this is only one laboratory...so the actual count is sure to be higher. So far there have been 148 cases reported in 2018 !
Why is testing your dog for Lyme disease important?
"There’s some info that suggests canine exposure to Borrelia (the bacterium that is transmitted by deer ticks causing Lyme disease) can also be an indicator of the risk of human exposure, which makes sense since dogs and people are exposed the same way (i.e. being bitten by an infected deer tick ( Ixodes scapulars) tick)."
- from the worms and germs blog
Tracking the incidence of Lyme disease in dogs brings awareness as to where on the map it can be found and indicates that we as humans must also take precautions not to contract it through tick bites. Some areas on the map may have a higher endemic incidence than others, but even one Lyme positive Deer tick in our area indicates we should be doing all we can to protect our pets and our family.

Walk In Pet Grooming Days
Posted on Nov 4, 2017
I have always loved animals my whole life. I used to volunteer with my grandfather at the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind when i was very young. I would assist him with photography at their events and classes, and as I got older, we fostered a few dogs for their training program.
I first started in grooming when I took a job as a bather and very quickly realized that grooming satisfied both my love of animals with my love of art. I now have 10 years experience in grooming - mostly working in high-end areas of Toronto.
I am a perfectionist and will undoubtedly make sure your dog looks the best it possibly can every time. I regularly attend grooming conferences and seminars in order to keep perfecting my techniques and stay ontop of trendy and new styles.
I am always happy to do breed standard clips, puppy cuts, and creative grooming of any sort. I also make sure even the most matted dog goes home looking the best they can because I take pride in what I do and I will not judge you :).
I always have a pocket full of treats and a happy outlook. I try to be very observant and tailor my handling techniques to your dog. I will give them breaks if they are stressed, use treats for encouragement, get them to "work" by doing something such as giving a paw for trimming, or have them do nothing at all if that seems to make them happy :).
