Dog Flea & Tick
Nothing is worse than finding fleas and ticks on your pup and in your home. Prevention is the key to a pest free home. Your dog just like any other wildlife can pick up these nasty critters by just walking outside and doing their business near a bush. In order to prevent your dog from getting ticks you need to understand how they find their host. While it is commonly thought that ticks can jump, they can’t. Ticks need climb on leaves, tall grasses and bushes in order to latch on to your precious pup. Ticks can also find their host through their breath, body odor and vibrations. This technique that ticks use is called questing where they stretch out their front legs waiting for something to brush by them. Some ticks attack quickly while others try to find a spot where the skin is thinner like your dog’s ears. This is why it is important especially during the summer months to check inside your dog’s ears and in between their toes for ticks.
