Meet Frost!


Meet Frost. What a handsome boy he is ūüôā Frost is a 7-year-old Siberian Husky. His owner took him for a nice long hike along the Bruce Trail/Niagara Escarpment yesterday, near the Devil’s Punch Bowl in Hamilton. This morning they found a tick on him. After taking a closer look through his coat, they realized there were multiple ticks. They even found 1 on themselves. That’s when they brought him in to us.

Frost didn’t only have 1 or 2 or 3 ticks, we pulled 22 ticks off of him!! Not including all the ones that went down the bathtub.

Luckily for Frost these ticks were American Dog Ticks. These ticks are not known to carry any diseases in Canada.
