GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- The unseasonable weather this year could lead to a problem for pets.

According to national pet clinic chain Banfield Pet Hospitals, Michigan is among the worst states for fleas on dogs.  Grand Rapids Veterinarian Karyl Ropko says this is the time of year when fleas are at their worst.

Until there's a good, hard frost, says the veterinarian, the bugs will remain a problem outside and could easily make it into your home.  Ropko says now is the time to check and treat your pets for fleas.
