Increase in ticks

We have recently seen an increase in the number of clients finding ticks on their pets!

A tick may appear initially like a spider that is brown in colour. When it feeds, it swells to around a pea size.

Ticks must be removed and we would only recommend trying this at home if you are confident in doing so as you must remove the whole tick and done incorrectly, it is quite easy to leave the head in your pet.

If you are a member of our Well Pet Club, our nursing team can remove a tick for you as it is covered in your plan! If you are not confident in the removal of a tick, always seek help from our team.

Ticks are well documented to spread disease and this is why we recommend regular prevenative treatment to help avoid any nasty situations! We have plenty of stock and can also check on your records when your pet last received a preventative treatment from us.

If you have any concerns, please email or call your nearest branch for advice.
