Ticks can transmit diseases not only in humans but also in animals. Animals are even more vulnerable because they are more exposed to ticks in nature than man. Tick diseases in animals are poorly understood. Dogs, for example, can suffer from Lyme disease, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis or TBE. But even with horses and cats, there are tick-borne diseases. Symptoms such as fever, weakness, loss of appetite, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes and changing lameness can be the result of Lyme disease. Borrelia damage to the heart muscle can be fatal to the animal.

Check your pet for ticks regularly. Please keep in mind that ticks can remain dangerous if they have fallen off a pet and are still alive. For the removal of ticks, the same rules apply in humans and animals. Ticks should be removed as cautious in animals as in humans.

For hygienic reasons: Use a separate Tickgripper for your pet.
