Dog owners should regularly check their pets for ticks, paying special attention to areas between toes, under legs, around ears, and the base of the tail. If ticks are found, consult your veterinarian or local pet supply store specialist for recommendations on treatment of the dogs. Keeping dogs confined to a treatable area, yard, kennels, etc., is also helpful. Yards should be free of debris, bushes and trees trimmed and lawns mowed for best treatment results. Ticks are best controlled and maintained in the yard and home by hiring a professional pest control company.
With Halloween just around the corner, its time for larger-than-life creepy, crawly creatures skittering across lawns, lurking in dark alleyways and dropping out of nowhere to frighten their hapless victims.
Keep on top of your pets’ pest potentials this spring and summer, by ensuring that your four-legged friends visit the vet for flea and tick prevention treatments or by purchasing effective topical drop treatments and ingested flea and tick products on the market.
