What about speaking about how to protect your pets against mosquito problem we are experiencing in Michigan?

We need to hear from Veterinarians on topic of mosquito that can kill your dog and is plaguing us now in Michigan. Even with monthly protection what else can we do. One dog has already died from mosquito bite in Michigan and no one is doing article for pets on this issue

Thank you it is so needed. My dog loves the grass and I have concerns even with using preventatives. I heard one dog died from mosquito already and no one is addressing this yet
