How Did My Dog Get Ticks?

pet petcare pethealth dogTicks can always find a way of getting into your home and onto your pets. Learn about how your dog can get ticks.

Key takeaways:

– Other animals such as squirrels, feral cats, and raccoons coming into your yard attracted by pet food or water may bring ticks with them.

– Ticks can be carried by your visitors or even yourself after visiting areas where ticks are prevalent.

– Poor landscaping may encourage the growth of tick colonies. Plants that repel ticks can be included in the garden or yard to minimize tick infestation.

Anytime your dog goes out into the world — even if only for short walks around the block; play dates at the local dog park; a visit to the veterinarian; a stint at the boarding kennel; a trip to the groomer; a ride in the car; etc. — he/she is being exposed to the opportunity for fleas and ticks to hop aboard.
