Our pets fight ticks

It\’s no secret
And ticks can transmit a variety of diseases, from less serious to more serious. If we are lucky, only skin problems such as eczema and allergies can occur after getting rid of ticks. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions to life-threatening diseases such as lyme disease, tick-borne encephalitis and even tick-borne polio. In cats and rabbits, hemobartonellosis, rickets and tularemia can be encountered. Carriers of infection are only women. However, according to many sources, infection should not occur earlier than 24 hours after the latch. The 2 most well-known diseases (lyme disease, tick-borne encephalitis) have very similar symptoms: temperature, loss of appetite, apathy to aggression, joint and muscle pain. However, the incubation period varies greatly. With lyme disease, with tick-borne encephalitis, the first symptoms can be met only after 3 months or six months, and the first symptoms can be noticed after 1 week to 9 days.
In the next line we will talk about how to successfully fight these multi-millimeter creatures.

Prevention of disease

Protection by anthelmintic agents

The best precaution before biting a tick is to use a wide variety of antiparasitic agents on the market. It is important to choose a really high-quality product from a proven manufacturer or consult a veterinarian who will help you with the right choice. However, it is necessary to pay close attention to use the product only for the animal species to which it is intended. Otherwise, severe allergic reactions or even more serious health complications may occur. From the products offered, you can choose products based on sprays, collars, pipettes or oral tablets.

Currently, it is only possible to vaccinate your pet against lyme disease. This measure does not repel the tick, but prevents the development of the disease after it adheres. Since the Borreliosis vaccine is not part of the usual vaccination, the owners pay for it separately. It is recommended to vaccinate in winter, when the activity of ticks is minimal. Tick-borne encephalitis is a sporadic problem in animals, and vaccines have not yet been developed.
