Although some of these creepy critters might survive during the cold season; Spring, Summer, and Fall are the perfect seasons for these problematic little creatures, especially in wooded areas, tall grasses, and even at the beach. Fortunately for your pet, it has an owner that has the habit of visually checking and feeling for ticks.
Tips with dealing with Ticks:
But an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure here:
1. Use a topical monthly ointment to deter and kill ticks and fleas.
2. A 6 month flea and tick collar might be the perfect match for your dog.
3. Or a once a month dog chews to prevent ticks and fleas.
4. And get your dog vaccinated from Lyme Disease.
Dogs love to play outside and having a good habit of checking and preventing ticks is a great benefit.
