Lyme Disease In Places It Never Was Before

According to the Centers for Disease Control Lyme Disease is getting worse in some regions where it is already an epidemic, like Virginia and West Virginia, while spreading to other areas such as Ohio and Tennessee.  Lyme Disease is a vector-borne zoonotic disease - which means it is a disease that results from an infection transmitted to hmans and other animals by blood feeders like mosquitoes, ticks and fleas.  

Does the risk for Lyme Disease go away in the winter months?  Ticks are still alive and well, can still transmit disease and can be easily missed on a dog or cat.  Year round protection is a must as ticks do not take a vacation!
