How to Prevent Ticks on Your Dog

Ticks, those pesky little pests that are carriers for dreaded Lyme disease, are a dog owner’s worst nightmare. Every owner knows how much of a nuisance they can be and how susceptible our pets are to being bitten by them. Thankfully, there are many precautionary measures and preventative products available that can help you and your family in the battle against ticks.

Preventative Steps to Take

There are several things you can do to reduce the likelihood of your pet contracting a disease from these pests:

• Routinely check your pets for ticks, especially after they have been outdoors. In the instance you find a tick, remove it immediately.

• Use a tick prevention spray on your backyard to reduce the habitat in which ticks can live and thrive.

• Get a tick and flea collar or topical for your pet, which also helps to prevent flea infestation.

• Talk with your veterinarian to see which preventative medications are appropriate for your dog and cat.
