“Summer Activities”

Check yourself, your family and your pets regularly for ticks. If someone gets bit, ice the bite and call a vet or doctor, they may want to check for lyme disease or other infections.

Yesterday, as I was ripping out the last of yellow squash, I noticed a tick on my leg– a fairly large one, at that! So I ran into the house, got some ice, and called my vet. They didn’t want to check for anything, but I insisted because, you know, I have a right. And when they– that’s my vet– still wouldn’t check for anything, I had a tantrum. used my needle nosed pliers to pick it off and went on about the business of ripping out squash.
