Family Summer Safety

For most of us, summer is a time of fun and relaxation. But for children, summer is also known as "trauma season."

Get the latest news on how to protect your family - and have fun - this summer.

Pet Safety

Humans aren't the only ones affected by sun and heat; your pets are too. From dehydration, fleas and ticks, fertilizers and insecticides - and even sun burns - get the latest pet safety tips here.

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is transmitted by the bite of an infected tick. It can cause a number of medical conditions, including arthritis, nerve or heart problems.
