With summertime officially here, it's very important to carefully check your human for ticks or fleas after they've been playing in the grass. Fleas are just a bother, but ticks can infect your humans with Lyme Disease, which can cause very serious symptoms. Thankfully, our far greater evolutionary development has blessed us with an always-in-fashion protective fur coat, but humans just haven't yet reached this level of development.

As in all matters with taking care of your humans, remember: they're not as well-developed as us and are far inferior in vision, hearing, smell, strength, flexibility, beauty, charm, grace, poise, style, fending for  themselves and catching food. For these reasons, humans do need that extra special care and attention.

Take good care of your human so you can both enjoy the summer together!
