More than one-third of pet owners don't protect their pet from flea, tickborn diseases, study says

A recent Harris Poll study revealed that a third of pet owners don't protect their pets regularly with flea and tick medication, and 48 percent don't have routine vet exams to protect against the same. This study was released following a CDC statement that illnesses from fleas, ticks, and mosquitos have gone up threefold in the last 13 years.
