July 11, 2019 is All American Pet Photo Day.  It’s one day where it is socially acceptable to bombard your social media feeds with adorable photos of your fur-babies.

You can also use July 11th, 2019 as an opportunity to check in with your flea & tick prevention plan to be sure you’re doing everything you can to protect the four-legged members of your family.
