Bug Control: Ticks

 

 Dr. Paul DeMars discusses the animal and human health risks associated with ticks in the summer season. 

 

OSU Center for Veterinary Health Sciences faculty member Dr. Paul DeMars discusses the animal and human health risks associated with ticks.

 

Warmer temperatures and longer days may bring summer fun, but it also brings the potential for bugs to spread harmful disease if gone unnoticed for an extended period of time.

 

Keep your pets (and your home) tick free this season by watching #AsktheExperts and visiting with your personal veterinary professional. 

 

So, what is the best defense against ticks?

Check out these #AsktheExpert tips:

  • Keep the brush cleared out and your yard well cut to prevent ticks from lingering.

  • Talk to your veterinary professional about what tick preventative medicine might be best for your pets.

  • Check your animals often for ticks in the warmer seasons, and monitor their health levels for signs of lethargic behavior, sickness or lack of appetite.
