Tick Season: It's the season of the ticks

As the weather warms up, it’s essential to be vigilant about ticks, which can cause serious health issues for our canine companions. Ticks thrive in warm, humid environments, making spring and summer prime times for infestations. These tiny parasites can transmit diseases like Lyme disease, so early detection and prevention are crucial.

Signs Your Dog Might Have Ticks:

Excessive scratching or licking
Red or irritated skin
Small bumps or ticks visible on the skin

Tips for Tick Prevention:

  1. Regular Grooming: Regular grooming helps detect ticks early. Pay special attention to areas like the neck, ears, and under the legs.
  2. Tick Checks: After outdoor activities, thoroughly check your dog for ticks.
  3. Use Preventative Products: Invest in quality tick-preventative products to protect your pet.
  4. If in doubt, stick to footpaths and avoid long grass. 
  5. Wear long sleeved tops where possible
