  • Lays 20 to 40 eggs every day for several weeks

Ticks


​Preventative and active treatments include once-a-month topicals, sprays, dips, shampoos, collars, oral products, and flea combs.  These products are widely available at most pet and online stores (which may be cheaper).  As always, please consult with your veterinarian when treating your pal.



CAUTION: If you choose to remove a tick, it is essential that it be done properly or you risk infection.  The Humane Society has an excellent article about removing a tick.  Again, consult with your veterinarian about any medical advice.
