Pet Tick Prevention

Ticks are becoming increasingly prevalent in North America, and they’re now being found in areas where people and pets didn’t previously encounter ticks.

Pet Tick Prevention

Ticks aren’t just a nuisance; they can cause severe and sometimes deadly diseases, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and tick paralysis. Contact us immediately if your pet starts coughing or has joint pain, trouble breathing, fever, weakness, loss of appetite, weight, energy, or coordination.

The best method for keeping ticks off your pet is keeping your dog or cat on a tick preventive. Even indoor-only pets are at risk because ticks can hitch a ride inside on your clothing or shoes. Tick preventives are safe and highly effective at controlling ticks and the diseases they carry. Call us to get your pet protected today!

Don’t panic if you find a tick on your dog or cat, even if your pet is on a preventive. Some preventives kill ticks after they’ve come in contact with your pet. Ticks can hide easily under your pet’s fur, so as an added measure of protection, we recommend checking your pet for ticks whenever your pet comes in from outside. And don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you might have.
