tick-borne disease is becoming an increasing risk

Ticks are bloodsucking parasites which can temporarily attach to dogs and cats when they come into contact with them, usually outside (for example in long grass and in rural woodland areas), but they can be found anywhere.

Ticks are on the rise

There is a reported increase in the number of ticks. In Great Britain the distribution of ticks was estimated to have expanded in the last 10 years by 17% and the abundance of ticks have increased at 73% of locations surveyed.3

Prevention is key

There are a number of ways we can help protect pets against the increasing risk of ticks and related disease transmission. This includes checking pets regularly, using tick hooks or tweezers to remove ticks, and using a fast-acting product that kills the 4 key tick species affecting dogs and cats. Prevention is better than cure!
