FAQ About Ticks

When is Tick season?
Ticks are the most active from March to mid-May and from mid-August to November.We recommend that you keep your pet on tick prevention medication from April to November. Ticks are on the move as soon as the temperature is over 4 degree Celsius.

Where do we find ticks?
Ticks live on the ground or they move from low shrubs to another where they can attach to your dog as he walks by. When petting your dog to look for ticks concentrate on the areas that are closest to the ground such as the neck and head area, check around the ears, chest and underside of their belly.

Do Ticks carry disease?
Lyme disease can be transmitted by ticks but primarily by the deer ticks which can be found on Manitoulin Island. Ticks are not only harmful to your pets they can also be harmful to you and your family.
