Have you noticed yourself removing tick after tick off your dog this summer? You’re not alone. Dog owners across the nation have difficulty-dislodging ticks from their dogs. It is important to remove ticks from your dog because ticks cause serious, deadly diseases.
How can you keep your dog tick free all season long? My Pet Store and More is here to help you keep your dog tick free with our exceptional tick removal products.
Before we get into the nitty, gritty of tick removal, you need to understand having a tick free dog means you have a healthy dog.
What are ticks?
Ticks are parasites that live just about anywhere. Ticks infect thousand of dogs with serious diseases such as Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, and Anaplasmosis.
You can reduce the health risks ticks make your dog vulnerable to with preventive measures like medications, tick collars and residual protection shampoos.
Tick infections are most prevalent during the spring and summer months.
Once a tick infects your dog, it can lay hundreds of thousands of eggs at a time on your dog’s coat.
What can you do to protect your dog from ticks?
For starters, you can keep your lawn mowed to make your home property less suitable for ticks. During the fall make sure you clear your home of leaves.
Next, buy high quality flea and tick control products.
Here at My Pet Store and More we recommend the following tick removal products:
–Spot on medications. These medications will help keep ticks and other parasites away from your dog for at least a month at a time. There are also oral medications available to help kill ticks and remove fleas from your dog.
-Dog shampoos that feature tick medication. This is a great way to kill ticks on contact. We recommend shampooing your dog with the dog shampoo every two weeks for best results.
-Tick collars. This will help you protect your dog’s neck and head from ticks. When placing the tick collar on your dog, make sure there’s room for you to fit two fingers under the tick collar.
-Tick spray. Tick sprays should be applied after dog shampoos and tick dips. You should also apply tick spray on your dog when you plan to spend a day outdoors, particularly wooden areas.
Remember, it only takes one tick to put your dog at risk of serious diseases and only one tick to create an infestation in your home.
Keep tick removal and tick treatments consistent. If you do not keep up with tick control, it could take months to get the problem under control.
