Many of us cringe at the thought of having ticks in our pets or on our own body – after all, ticks do look extremely disgusting. Then there is also the worry that having one in the household mean that there are thousands more lurking around, creating health hazards for your loved pets and family members.
How does ticks appear in the first place? Ticks tend to lurk around in grass or plants nearby, waiting for a warm-blooded host to attach to. Once found, it would jump onto the body of the host, attaching its mouthparts into the host and would not detach itself once attached. They usually prefer areas that have lesser hair in the body of the host. Female ticks would lay hundreds to thousands of eggs periodically, which the eggs would hatch and go through four life cycles. Throughout all cycles, the ticks would feed on the blood of the host to survive and grow.
What’s deadlier than having your blood constantly drained would be how ticks are known to be transmitters of diseases. While most diseases are not life threatening for humans, they may post as a serious risk to your furry companions which are not aware that they have ticks on their body. In certain cases, ticks may cause fever, joint swelling and anemia. In serious cases, it may even cause a temporary condition named tick paralysis, which causes the pet to lose their limb strength and overtime, to worsen into paralysis.
However, here’s a piece of good news for you: most diseases tend to be alleviated swiftly once the tick is removed. That said, prevention is always better than cure and for the well-being of your beloved pet, how do you effectively reduce the chances of having ticks to the minimal?
