Tick and Tick Control

• Dogs and cats may be parasitized by ticks; ticks found on dogs and cats are in the families “Ixodidae” and “Argasidae”
• Ticks may cause other health problems, including allergic reactions (hypersensitivity), paralysis, and blood-loss anemia
• Tick control is challenging; in many areas, tick control is required year-round
