Ticks are becoming more and more prevalent throughout North America, and they’re now being found in areas where people and pets didn’t previously encounter them. These external parasites aren’t just a nuisance, either. They can cause serious—and sometimes deadly—diseases, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and tick paralysis. Contact Huron East Animal Hospital immediately if your pet starts coughing, is exhibiting signs of weakness and/or joint pain, has trouble breathing, has a fever, or experiences loss of appetite, weight, energy, or coordination.
You can help keep ticks off your pet by keeping them on a tick preventive. Even indoor-only pets are at risk because ticks can hitch a ride inside on your clothing or shoes. Tick preventives are safe and effective at controlling ticks and the many diseases they carry. Call Huron East Animal Hospital to get your pet protected today!
If you find a tick on your dog or cat, even if he or she is already on a preventive, don’t panic! Some preventives don’t actually kill ticks until after they’ve come in contact with your pet. Ticks can also hide under your pet’s fur, so as an added measure of protection, we recommend checking for ticks every time your pet comes in from outside. And don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
You want your pet to enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. Let the wellness and preventative services at Huron East Animal Hospital help you achieve that goal!
