• Step-by-step check for ticks

    The sooner the better is the best approach to finding out if there are ticks on your dog or cat. And the best way to find out is to make checking your pet part of your routine. Then, follow these steps:

    1. To determine if your pet has ticks, carefully feel their body, paying special attention to ears, neck and under the legs. If you feel a small bump, this is likely a tick.

    3. If your pet check confirms there are ticks, don’t wait. There are many types of product available to eliminate ticks in all their stages of development. Be sure to follow directions for the safety of your pet and your household.
