Suggested Post: Did you know it’s Lyme Disease Prevention Month? In Minnesota, there have been over 2,500 positive cases reported of Lyme Disease in dogs so far this year. In Wisconsin, over 3,500 positive cases! Please keep your pet safe and provide the best possible care by giving them a monthly preventative to protect them against Lyme disease, heartworm, and fleas.

Tip: You can also include the cost of a years supply of preventatives versus the cost of care for Lyme disease to increase the sense of urgency. Use a previous case as an example of exact costs or give a sample range.
