We are proud to share that our Hospital Manager, Krista, is now trained to be a Tick Smart Educator by University of Rhode Island's TickSmart Community Health Resource Center!
TickSmart Educators learn about and practice using best-in-class tick bite protection tools and strategies. She now has the resources to help you and your pet keep safe year-round! Ticks do not go away here in Rhode Island - remember to use flea and tick prevention 12 months of the year.
Riverside Animal Hospital and Krista also are TickEncounter Preventative Partners (TEPP). TEPPs help engage, educate, and empower people to take appropriate actions to prevent tick bites and the often-serious diseases that ticks can transmit. They are committed to improving the health of the communities and the people they serve.
Feel free to call us at (401) 433-2070 and you too could learn how to be "Tick Smart!"
