Wednesday, March 21 2018 Southern California weather can promote the life cycle of many biting insects regardless of the time of year. Insects such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are not just a nuisance. They can cause harmful diseases such as heartworm, Lyme disease, Erlichiosis, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, anemia, Cat Scratch fever, and tapeworm infection. Parasites can also transfer some of these diseases to people. We recommend year-round parasite protection for all pets including ones who live mostly or exclusively indoors since vectors can find their way or be tracked into the home.
