Checking for Ticks

You should check your pet for ticks every day, especially during tick season, or year-round in warmer climates. Run your fingers through their fur while applying enough pressure to feel any small bumps. Make certain to check between your pet’s toes, behind the ears, under armpits and around the tail and head. If you do feel a bump, pull the fur apart to see what’s there. A tick that has embedded itself in can also vary in size, they can be as small as a pinhead to as large as a grape, depending on how long it has been attached.
