Ticks on your PetsThese nasty little bloodsuckers are waiting for your pets to walk by and catch a ride. They are found in urban areas such as gardens, parks woods and heaths.
Ticks are not only a nuisance to pets, causing irritation and local inflammation and infection, they are also second only to mosquitoes throughout the world in transmitting infectious disease to humans and animals.
Ticks are very active in the spring and autumn so now, but also remain a problem throughout the summer months if weather conditions are favourable. Sometimes too tiny to be seen, ticks attach to pets and engorge with blood, increasing their weight by up to 100 times before dropping off after 5 to 10 days.
To protect your pets from ticks and the problems they cause it is important to regularly treat them with a product that will kill ticks within 48 hours of attachment, minimising the chance of a disease being transmitted to your pet! Frontline Spot on kills ticks, so helping protect your cats and dogs against the problems they cause.
