Tickremoval in animals

1. Remove ticks from humans and animals with the same care!

2. Remove the tick as soon as possible, as the longer a tick feeds the higher the risk of infectious transmission.

3. Avoid squeezing or crushing the tick during removal!

4. Disinfection of the bite wound will not hinder infectious disease transmission!

5. Examine your pet carefully. There are often more ticks especially in haired animals.

6. Keep in mind that ticks might crawl away and can cause infections again.

7. Consult your veterinarian if your pet develops symptoms. Animals also suffer from ticks diseases!
