Thursday, June 2 at 11:00 AM (Central time) Northern Wisconsin is an epicenter for at least 6 tick-borne illnesses that can cause serious and sometimes long-lasting symptoms. Many of our friends and neighbors have gotten sick from Lyme, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, and other diseases while working or recreating outside. Warmer and shorter winter conditions are affecting how and when infected ticks spread their bacteria. Pets also need to be protected from tick bites, as these Warmer conditions are now causing pet illnesses in every month of the year. You can watch a recording of the program here.
Join us for the second session of a three-part webinar series called “Living with Ticks” on Thursday, June 2 at 11 AM (Central time) called “Tick-Borne Diseases and Your Pets.”
The webinar is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. Use this link to register.
