The importance of tick treatment for dogs
Ticks are rife in the Australian natural environment, particularly in bush, scrub and long grass. They are parasites which attach onto your dog’s skin and feed on their blood. There are three different types of ticks found in Australia:
- Brown ticks
- Bush ticks
- Paralysis ticks
Paralysis ticks are by far the most dangerous of these. Their saliva is highly toxic and does serious damage to your dog’s nervous system. Without being treated in time, virtually no dogs survive a paralysis tick infection.
This is why regular tick treatment for dogs is an essential part of giving them the proper care they deserve.
Why you need flea control for dogs
Most dogs will be affected by fleas at some point during their lives. This is an extremely uncomfortable experience for your dog, as they will become extremely itchy. However, flea bites can also cause more complicated skin conditions such as allergies and dermatitis. These are highly distressing conditions for your dog and can lead to other infections, which are very costly to treat.
In addition, fleas can be hosts for parasites including tapeworms, which are then transferred to your dog via flea bites.
Fleas can lay between 40 and 50 eggs every day, and once they’ve infested your home it can take months to get rid of them. In some cases, they can even transfer to humans, so it’s not just your poor dog that will be itchy and uncomfortable!
A preventative flea treatment for dogs is the easiest and most convenient way to break the flea life cycle and remove the risk of infestation.
