Protect Your Pets

Protecting pets from ticks, and the illnesses those bugs carry, is a crucial aspect of your overall prevention strategy for two reasons.

First, you want to protect your pet from suffering through the often-debilitating symptoms of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. Many owners view their pets as family members, so taking care to protect them against tick bites is important for the general well being of the entire family.

Second, taking prevention measures against ticks with your pets will also further insulate you and your family from tick bites, because it will stop ticks from hitching a ride on your pet and coming into your home.

There are three actions you should take to limit your pet’s exposure to ticks, their bites, and the diseases they carry.
