Lyme Disease Prevention for Pets

As with most diseases, Lyme disease is easier to prevent than it is to treat. If your pet becomes diagnosed with Lyme Disease, it can cause symptoms of severe joint pain (similar to arthritis), fever, and lameness. But there's no need for your pet to be at risk! With the variety of popular pet medications, you can provide your pet with protection against ticks (most commonly the deer tick) that can carry Lyme Disease.

Tick control products

For tick prevention and control, the Preventic Amitraz Tick Collar for Dogs provides continuous protection up to 3 months and is water resistant. If you happen to find ticks on your pet, products like Resultix simplify their removal.

Flea medications with tick control

If you prefer giving your pet a monthly flea medication with built-in tick protection, consider a few of the options below.

Home & yard tick protection

Protecting your pet isn't the only way to prevent a tick infestation. The use of a fogger or spray to treat your home and yard provides an extra barrier of protection for both your pet and family.

Max's Tip

Lyme disease is a zoonotic disease, which means it can be spread to humans. Providing protection against ticks not only helps your pet, but can also protect your family against the disease.
