Ticks can be seen easily in your pets coat. They look like small spider-like, egg shaped creepy crawlies. They can attach anywhere on your pets skin.

Ticks are usually picked up in woodland, grassland or in your garden.

You will need to remove the tick with a tick remover and can use tick repellants to avoid your pet attracting ticks. Spot on treatments, tablets and collars can be used to kill and repel ticks.

You can purchase tick treatments at your vets or in your local pet shop or pharmacy.
