Quick Tips to Share with Pet Owners
  • Check your dog for ticks daily. If you find a tick, remove it right away (ticks will gravitate to the head, ears and neck).
  • Use a tick preventive on your dog.
  • Watch your dog closely for changes in behavior or appetite and call your veterinarian with any concerns.
  • Talk with your veterinarian about ticks and vector-borne disease in your area.
  • If your pet's test results are negative, congratulations! Keep up the good work with regular preventive screenings and daily tick checks.
