If you have pets, they are likely considered part of the family. It’s important to protect every member of your family from nasty pests, especially your furry family members. By taking steps to keep them tick free you are also able to better protect your family as a whole. Here at AllGreen Lawncare, we aim to protect every member of your family with tick control programs that will keep your yard tick-free for both you and your pets. Here are a few ways you can keep your pets safe from ticks at home.
Know Where to Check
If you have a pet that spends a significant amount of time outdoors, it’s especially important to make sure you are checking your pets for ticks regularly. Equally as important however is knowing where to check. Start around their eyes and look near their collar or behind their ears. Ticks also like to hide behind their legs, between their toes, and around their tail. Making it a habit to check your pets in these areas will reduce the time a tick spends on your pet if they have been bitten.
Tick Collars and Treatments
There are numerous products you can buy that can help to deter ticks from biting your pets. Tick collars are a simple way to keep ticks off your pet. These collars release tick deterring odors for several months at a time. Another popular method of tick repellent is a topical solution applied on the back of your pet’s neck. There are other oral options as well, each depending on a variety of factors. Ask your vet what they would recommend for your pet for tick control.
Make Your Pets a Priority
It’s not just important for your pets to be protected for their sake. It’s of utmost importance for your sake as well. Your pet can act as a one-way express train for ticks to access your home. They sit on the couch with your kids and sleep on your bed. By being diligent to take preventative tick measures with your pet you are also protecting your home and vastly decreasing the risk of exposure for your whole family.
