Problem: Ticks Invading Your Home and Yard
Ticks often travel around using other animals such as rabbits, mice, deer and even your dog. The most common way ticks gain access to people's homes is via household pets. Pets can often transfer ticks to their owners if they share a bed or furniture.
Solutions: Pet Tick Protection and Control Wildlife in Yard
What you can do to protect your pet:
- Monthly application of topical tick preventative pet products
- Regular pet grooming sessions/tick checks
- Prevent contact with tick risky zones such as tall grass, leaf litter, edges of wooded areas.
- If your pet is bitten by a tick, then send that tick in for a TickReport™ or Order a K9MyLymeTest™ At-Home Kit.
