Help Me Get Rid Of This Tick Before I Get Sick!
Spring is just around the corner and with it warm temperatures. With everything in blossom it’s easy to forget that besides plant life, other forms of life will also bloom and prosper. One of them is particularly problematic for us dogs – ticks. Dog owners, who live in areas close to meadows and woods or take their pooches there for their daily strolls, should always be aware of the “tick problem”. Dogs need to be examined after every such stroll – between their toes, on their head, neck, or ears. The best way to remove a tick is with tweezers while wearing rubber gloves.
Ticks transmit infectious diseases like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularaemia and more. Many of them can be fatal.
If your dog displays unusual or strange symptoms after a tick has been removed, take him to the vet immediately.
