Ticks are active in the spring and summer months when the weather is warm; and these seasons are when pet owners take their pets with them on dog walks and hikes.
Grooming regularly keeps dog's fur from matting and will help easily detect a dog tick embedded in the skin of pets. If a tick is found, do not use fingers to remove the tick. This action can lead to the tick breaking off and potentially spreading diseases to the dog, such as Lyme Disease. Instead, remove a tick with a tick remover tool. Using a tick disease prevention tool will ensure that all parts of the tick are gently removed from the skin.
Using a tick remover tool is the best way to manage embedded ticks in the skin on both people and pets.
