by Penn State Extension

May 13, 2022

Learn how to protect your pets from tick bites and prevent them from bringing ticks into your home.

Ticks seem to be everywhere and they are more than a nuisance on your pets; they can carry pathogens that cause diseases. Protecting pets from tick bites with products that are safe and effective is essential year-round, but reducing the risk of tick bites shouldn’t stop there. Managing ticks around your home can help reduce tick encounters. Pets can also bring ticks indoors so it is also important that pet owners understand and take measures to prevent ticks from biting themselves and others in the household.
