Ticks are like Ticking Bombs

Ticks are like Ticking Bombs

Humans and animals have a very long relationship with each other.

Some animals become “beasts of burden” to humans while others provide companionship and entertainment.

And among these animals, cats and dogs are very popular with people from different countries for some good reasons.

For one, it is very easy to keep them in our homes and feeding them would that be of a problem. 

The number of pet owners around the world increases by the numbers all-year-round.

Acquiring a canine and feline pet is so easy by just visiting a local pet shop.

But behind these adorable furry pets hides a menacing creature so scary that it would give anyone goosebumps.

Ticks are parasitic arachnids, usually 3-5mm small and living through blood-sucking either in humans and animals.

Ticks have 3 families classified, Ixodidae- the hard ticks; Argasidae – the soft ticks; and lastly, Nuttalliiellidae.

They are also related to mites, with the same subclass Acari.

In Australia, there are possible 70 species of ticks throughout the land; they are usually occurring in humid, high moisture areas.

People often encounter ticks with their beloved pets, cats, and dogs.

Many pet owners love their dogs with very thick furry hair, but unknowingly, there hide the bunch of ticks under that beautiful furry hair.

You will notice your dog is scratching every part of its body frequently.

Ticks make your pet their host to survive, feeding through your puppy’s blood and this may cause sleepless nights for your pet.

Ticks become dangerous to humans since they cause Tick-borne diseases or illnesses such as Australian Tick typhus or commonly called Spotted Fever in the coastal strip of Eastern Australia and Flinders Island Spotted Fever in Victoria, Tasmania, and Flinders Strait.

Tick paralysis can easily be seen through early symptoms such as headache, rashes, fever, and weakness of the limbs, to name a few.

Tick bites cause also some allergic reactions which can make the face and throat swelling and difficulty in breathing, if severe.

When you see early signs of ticks’ presence in your pet or your home, don’t just ignore it, or else, you will be surprised when you get a bite, ticks are like ticking bombs! You are already in danger.

Having your pet with grooming or ticks treatment cannot actually get rid of those ticks completely, as there are already eggs, larvae, or pupa which are possibly be left on your pet skin or her things and areas she usually plays.
