There are a number of types of ticks, some of which are a nuisance such as the bush tick, right through to Paralysis Tick which causes many fatalities each year. The Paralysis Tick is found all the way up the Eastern Seaboard from Bairnsdale in Eastern Victoria northwards and around to the Northern Territory. Very occasional reports also occur elsewhere in rural Victoria. They are particularly rife in Sydney and North from there. If your pet is travelling to any of these areas we strongly recommend tick prevention products such as Advantix.
WARNING: Please note not all products are suitable for every pet. In particular never use a dog product on a cat, as some of these can be very toxic to our feline friends. If you have any doubts or concerns about which product is best for your situation, please contact us.
