I have a question for anybody familiar with the Tri-Cities area of Eastern Washington: Just wondering if fleas and ticks are a problem for dogs (and cats) in the Tri-Cities? Might be too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer for them to exist? Also, any heartworm issues? Just wondering if Frontline and Heartgard are always in order...

I dont know about fleas and ticks in the area but I would put your dog on heartguard. From everything that I have read heartworms can be found in all 50 states now. I read up on it because I fostered a golden with heartworms and wanted to research how to best take care of her.
Here is a website that talks about it
