Tick Season in the Okanagan!

May 6, 2017

 

It is tick season in the Okanagan and where you will find deer, you will find ticks!

 

Consult your trusted veterinarian to discuss medical prevention that is most suited for your pup and how to take precautions while hiking.

 

These small pests feed on the blood of humans and animals and can sometimes pass diseases and are normally found in high grass and wooded areas. Adult ticks typically can be found waiting patiently at the end of bushes or grass strands with their arms out patiently waiting for an animal to pass by. If you’re headed outside for a hike or an adventure covering up is the best way to protect yourself.

 

Some of those precautions include:

  • Applying insect repellent containing DEET on uncovered skin.

  • Wearing a hat, long sleeves, pants, long socks, and light-coloured clothing.

  • Tucking pant legs into socks or boots.

  • Walking on trails when in tall grass or wooded areas.

  • Carefully checking clothing and scalp (covered or not) when leaving an area where ticks may live.

  • Having a shower after returning from areas where ticks may live.

 

It is important to watch for signs of tick-transmitted illnesses as ticks can carry diseases such as lyme disease. Signs of many tick-borne infections can be quite similar and include fever, headache, muscle pain, and rash. Anyone who experiences a bulls-eye rash or other symptoms should see a doctor as soon as possible.

 

If you spot a tick on you or your beloved furry family member contact your veterinarian to receive the correct recommendations for you and your pet.
