Over the past few years, we have seen a large increase in the number of both dogs & cats with ticks on them. Ticks do not fly or jump, but drop onto your dog or cat's coat when they brush past the place where the tick is sitting. They are most commonly seen between spring and autumn, but can be active all year round.
The best way to deal with ticks is to prevent them attaching to your pet in the first place. Several different products are now available which repel ticks & prevent attachment. In April we are offering half price Seresto Flea & Tick Collars, speak to Reception Team for more information.
