Pets are highly susceptible to tick bites and tickborne diseases. Vaccines are not available for most of the tick-borne conditions that pets can get, and they do not keep them from bringing ticks into your home. For these reasons, it is essential to use a tick preventive product on your pet.
Tick bites on pets may be hard to detect. Unfortunately, signs of tick-borne disease may not appear for 7-21 days or longer after a tick bite. You need to watch your pet closely for changes in behaviour or appetite if you suspect that a tick has bitten your pet.
