Warm humid weather are perfect breeding conditions and create huge numbers of paralysis ticks.  So after a very dry summers followed by rainfall all pet owners need to be extra vigilant and protect their pets now.



Many pet owners think that daily checking is enough - however they can be very hard to find and are very easy to miss. Paralysis ticks can be identified from other types of ticks as the legs are all close to the head where other ticks have the legs spaced around their bodies

Always seek veterinary advice if you find a tick on your pet or suspect your pet of having tick paralysis.
