Household pets have a rough summer ahead as the region is expected to be hit by a higher than usual tick population.

In addition to that they have to deal with summer heat and the last thing they need is a virus.

Some of those got a break last weekend as the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals sponsored a Parvo Clinic for dogs at the Kawehnoke Fire Station.

Twenty-two dogs were administered the vaccination which is highly contagious from animal to animal.

Early indications that your dog may be infected is vomiting, lethargy and diarrhea, which is sometimes bloody. This results in dehydration and that can trigger more problems, in most cases they can become fatal.

The Hogansburg Akwesasne Volunteer Fire Department provided the building and the efforts of the OSPCA are to be thanked for helping to keep our pets healthy and happy.
