Ticks Are Important Carriers Of Illnesses

Even if not every tick species can transmit illnesses, there are still ticks that are known dog parasites that can also carry diseases that can be transmitted to people. This is why it is important to take tick infestations seriously and never lightly.

Usual tick-transmitted illnesses have symptoms that include anemia, lameness, joint swelling, and fever. There are even certain species of ticks that could cause paralysis temporarily. This temporary paralysis is known as “tick paralysis” and for most cases, after treatment is administered, the symptoms disappear.

If you do live in an area where ticks are plentiful, regular tick-checks should be done on your dog. You must also have the proper know-how in removing ticks safely from your dog.

Ask your veterinarian Westminster, MD for assistance in crafting a regimen to safeguard your dog from ticks. Visit the website for more information.
