RIVERVIEW, N.B. – A veterinarian at the Riverview Animal Hospital says he’s concerned about a possible increase in the tick populations this spring.
Dr. Francis Arsenault says any increase should be a concern for pets and their owners.
“Any level of tick infestation with Lyme is a problem and certainly if you see an increase its more of a problem,” he said.
Ticks infected with Lyme disease can infect animals and people and reported cases of the disease have been on the rise across the Maritimes.
