Subject: Dog in Miami
Some friends of mine are travelling to Miami to stay with relatives for a couple of months and are planning to take their small lapdog with them. I'm able to give them most of the necessary advice about travelling with the dog, but could do with some information about staying there with him.

These questions might seem a bit strange, but conditions change depending on the locality, and I'm specifically interested in what might be appropriate for Miami.

Is there any problem with fleas and ticks? Hantavirus? Lyme's Disease?

Any problem with heartworm? (We don't have the problem here, so don't worry about medication.)

Any advice regarding health for the dog specifically staying in Miami will be appreciated.
