Ticks attach to your dog by inserting their mouth parts in your dogs skin. Once attached they begin feeding on your dogs blood.
There will be no outward signs that your dog has been bitten by a tick initially but your dog may become infected with Lyme Disease characterized by arthritis and swelling of your dog’s joints or Rocky Mountain Spotted fever which presents as fever, lameness, and other signs.
Fleas are a common pest for dogs cats and can easily spread among all the pets in your home. The first sign you have an infestation may come in the form of biting or scratching and may quickly turn into patches of missing fur and raw skin.
Beyond the outward signs of trouble and risk of infection fleas can carry parasites such as heartworms which are difficult to treat and can lead to long term health problems.
