Tick Control for Healthier Pets

Tick control

As a pet owner, taking care of your furry friend is always a priority, and this summer is no different. Ensuring your dog is healthy is of paramount importance, so it is important to understand the risks he or she could face during the warmer months. Just like us, dogs love to frolic in the warm weather. There are so many fresh new smells and visual stimuli to take in, making this a season to savor for dogs and their humans!

To have a great time, however, it is vitally important to understand the risks that you and your dog face when you spend time in the outdoors. People tend to have a more reserved approach to enjoying the outdoors, taking their time to walk along the paths and sticking to the better-tended parts of their yards. The same can’t be said for dogs. Our furry friends like to careen around like big balls of energy, often running around in bushes and grasses that we would preferably avoid. To our dogs, though, this is an absolute blast. Running around without regard for the surrounding environment can have consequences, though. As you already know, ticks are a big problem in our region. While they weren’t as big an issue in years past, environmental conditions are extremely favorable for tick populations to explode, and this is exactly what we’ve seen in recent years.

Hot, especially long summers mean these creatures can breed for longer before needing to enter their winter shelters, and our pets suffer as a result. Why? While humans are usually able to find ticks on their person, dogs have lots of hair in which a tick can hide and feed. As if this weren’t bad enough, our pets can also contract many of the tick-borne diseases that humans can. That’s right, your pet can contract Lyme disease, babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and more. This should be extremely concerning for any pet owner, as ticks can cause devastating diseases in our pets. To avoid a scenario where your pet encounters ticks in your yard, look to the professionals for powerful tick control.
