They spread potentially deadly diseases, and there are no vaccines for many tick-borne diseases. Some of these illnesses can also infect humans, so in addition to ensuring your favorite canine companion’s safety, preventing ticks on dogs is a vital step in protecting your own health and well-being and that of your family.

Use a Tick Control Product

Using a product that is formulated to kill ticks is the best thing you can do to prevent ticks on your pups. It’s important to talk to a veterinarian to learn more about the tick-borne diseases that are currently most prevalent in our area and what tick control products are most effective. While there are a lot of inexpensive flea and tick control products on the market, many are completely ineffective. Some low-quality brands can even be dangerous to your pet. For these reasons, it is always best to talk to a vet when trying to determine how to prevent ticks on your canine friends.

 

Treat Your Property

Keep your lawn mowed, prune trees and shrubs regularly, and clean up leaf litter. There are also environmental treatments for ticks that can help keep them out of your yard.
