Ticks can transmit diseases not only in humans but also animals. Animals are even more vulnerable because they are more exposed to ticks in nature than man. Ticks 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 regularly for ticks. Please keep in mind that ticks having fallen off the pet and being alive still can be dangerous. For tick removal, the same rules apply in humans and animals. Ticks should be removed as cautious in animals as in humans.

For hygienic reasons: Use for your pet its own Tickgripper!
