Tick Bite Prevention Week takes place in March each year. Ticks are small bloodsucking parasites that can carry a whole host of dangerous diseases – diseases that can be transmitted to pets and humans. Prevention is the best way to protect your pets and yourself against tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme disease.
A few facts about ticks…
Ticks are active and looking for something to feed on (you and your pet) as soon as the temperature hits 4°C.
Ticks transmit Lyme Disease and many other very serious and deadly illnesses.
Ticks can be tiny (too small to see), and they can look like a skin lump on your pet’s body.
Ticks live in wooded areas, tall grass, bushes, or leaves.
