Fleas and Ticks: Protecting Your Pets

Thursday, February 19 2015

Pet owners beware—fleas and ticks are not only an annoyance but they can cause serious medical problems in animals.  Lindsay Starkey, DVM, will present “Fleas and Ticks: Practical Tips for Protecting Your Pets” at a Veterinary Voices seminar on Tuesday, March 3, at 7 p.m. at OSU’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences.

The seminar is open to the public at no charge and will be held in the McElroy Hall Auditorium located at the corner of McFarland and West Farm Road on the OSU Stillwater campus.

Starkey will share information on how parasites work and where they come from.  Pet owners will learn strategies that will help protect their pets as well as themselves.
