It is very unpleasant when uninvited guests such as fleas or ticks appear on your pet or even on your own body. Ticks are blood-sucking arachnids that transmit many diseases to humans and animals. They can carry and transmit these diseases during all stages of life and cause serious illness. A very good defense against them is to prevent them from invading your home, yard and garden and kill them separately after removing ticks from pets or people.
Ticks live on tree branches, tall grasses, bushes and prefer moist places. Many diseases are associated with ticks: Colorado tick fever, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and many others. Some of them can be fatal. The most common of these is Lyme disease. Its symptoms include: high fever, headache, fatigue, muscle aches, rash and torticollis. If the disease progresses, other system irregularities may appear such as: tingling, unresponsive reflexes, stroke, inability to turn the head, fainting, sleep disturbances, and more.
If your dog or cat has ticks and regular vacuuming and bathing doesn’t help get rid of them, you should call your vet. Tick killing products are a great addition to your tick control regimen. Your veterinarian will recommend a famous brand product such as Frontline, Advantage, or K-9 Advantix. It is very important that you carefully read the directions on the product label and follow them exactly.
Many pet owners use Plus Flea and Tick Killer because it is effective in a very short time. It has a special ingredient that kills tick eggs and larvae and prevents the multiplication of parasites. Advantix is another flea and tick killer used by dog and cat owners. K9 Advantix uses a combination of imidacloporid and permethrin that affects the nerve cells of parasites and kills them quickly.
With these flea and tick killing products, your dogs and cats are protected from insect bites that cause pain, irritation, a lot of discomfort and transmit many harmful diseases. As a responsible pet owner, you need to take care of your pet so that it is healthy and happy all the time.
