Tick Control

Have you checked your pet for ticks lately? In the Bay Area, wintertime temperatures don’t tend to fall below the 40s, which means that ticks are still a hazard for dogs and cats even during the coldest months. If you want to make sure that your pet is protected from pests all year long, Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic can provide you with the safe and effective tick control treatment you’re looking for.

How are pets exposed to ticks?

Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for dogs and cats alike to be exposed to ticks. Many people discover ticks on their dogs after taking them for walks, particularly through areas with a lot of grass or foliage. Dogs may also pick up ticks from other pets at the dog park, while staying at a kennel, or even by encountering wild animals in your backyard. Ticks can even get into your home by hitching a ride on your clothing; this is how indoor cats are most likely to come into contact with ticks.

Why is tick control so important?

Ticks aren’t just annoying-they can also spread diseases that can make you or your pet very sick. Some of the common illnesses that your pet can catch from ticks include Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and babesiosis. If you discover even one tick on your pet, you should contact your vet right away.

It’s important to remember that ticks can survive year-round in the San Jose climate, so it’s still just as imperative to take steps to protect your pet from these pests in the winter as it is during the rest of the year. If you take your dog for walks through grassy areas, hiking trails, or other nature areas, consider talking to your veterinarian about your tick control options.
