Keep your grass mowed short and trim bushes and shrubs around the perimeter of your property.

After walks or outdoor playtime, do a thorough body check on your dog. Focus on areas like ears, paws, armpits, groin, and around the tail.

If you find a tick, remove it promptly and carefully with a pair of fine-tipped tweezers or a tick removal tool. Avoid squeezing the tick's body.

There are several tick prevention medication dogs, such as prescription oral medications, topical treatments applied to the skin, or tick collars.

The best tick prevention medication for your dog depends on its age, breed, lifestyle, and any potential health concerns. Your vet will be able to tell you which is the best treatment method for your dog.
