THE DANGERS OF TICKS ON YOUR DOG
Many pet owners aren’t aware of the dangers ticks pose. Ticks are second only to mosquitoes in airborne insects that spread infectious diseases. These airborne tick and mosquito diseases are becoming more commonplace in Connecticut. By educating yourself on the harmful effects of ticks, you can take steps to prevent these dangers.
Harmful Effects for You and Your Pet
What are some of the risks ticks pose to you and your dog? Ticks are parasites, they need a host to feed from. They’re usually found in outdoor, grassy areas. Not only do ticks cause a great deal of discomfort for your pets, but they can also carry infectious diseases. Some of the most common are Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
There’s little evidence to support dogs with Lyme disease passing it directly to their owners. Disease-carrying ticks can detach from your dog inside your home or in your yard, though, increasing the chances you could be bitten by the tick as well. Once female ticks have filled themselves on your dog’s blood, they will detach and are ready to lay eggs in the nearby surroundings – including your home or yard.
Signs of Ticks and Treatment
There are a couple of things to look out for if you suspect your pet has ticks. Check your dog’s fur for ticks after you’ve walked outdoors. Run your hands along your dog’s skin searching for bumps, particularly near the ears, head, armpits, groin, feet, and neck. One sign that a dog has ticks on its head is if the dog shakes its head excessively. Double-check scabs on your dog’s body, too. If the tick is removed, either by your dog licking it off or it detaches itself, a scab will form.
If you spot a dog tick, do not try to remove it with your fingernails. Veterinarians advise using a special hooked tool, called a “tick twister”, specially designed for this purpose. You might also contact your vet directly. If you notice signs of a tick bite in your dog – fatigue, loss of appetite, or vomiting – consider calling the vet.
If a tick bite goes unnoticed, it may be several months before your dog shows symptoms of sudden lameness or severe pain. Joints can often swell, become hot, and painful upon movement. Your pet may even strike a fever and/or become lethargic. In more severe cases, depression can be apparent and your dog may be reluctant to move. Lameness may recur after a period of recovery lasting several weeks.
How to Prevent Tick Bites on Your Dog
To ensure ticks stay away from you and your dog, choose tick spraying services. Tick spraying experts like Tick Control, LLC can carefully employ pesticides around your home to prevent ticks from infecting you and your loved ones.
A few other tips for preventing ticks are wearing suitable clothes when walking outside with your dog, spraying insect repellent, having a friend or family member check you for ticks after you’ve been walking in a tick-dense area, and grooming your dog thoroughly.
Counter the Risks of Dog Ticks
If you’re aware of the adverse effects ticks will have on you and your pet, you can take action to prevent it. Grant yourself some peace of mind with tick spraying. You, your family, and your furry friend are worth it.

LYME DISEASE: THE DANGEROUS RISKS OF NEGLECTING TO SPRAY FOR TICKS
Commonly-known as Lyme disease is a bacterial disease that is spread by tick bites. When infected ticks bite and suck blood from a human being, the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria is transferred to the human being. The most common ticks associated with this disease are the black-legged ticks and deer ticks. Lyme disease symptoms may take longer to appear depending on the rate and stage of infection. When left untreated for long, an infected person will consequently suffer the harmful effects of this disease. These long-term effects include;
One of the most common harmful effects of Lyme disease is severe joint pain. When left untreated, this disease will lead to joint swelling and inflammation. This joint pain will mostly affect your knees leading to long term arthritis. Lyme arthritis may prove difficult to treat thus preventive measures should be employed to prevent getting bitten by ticks.
Cognitive defects such as impaired memory will result from months of untreated Lyme disease. This may begin with difficulties while concentrating as the disease slowly affects the nervous system. Partial paralysis of the nervous system, a more serious condition will develop as the disease progressively attacks the affected person. Eventually, memory loss will catch up with the patient due to chronic Lyme disease.
Neuropathy and facial palsy are all associated with late-stage Lyme disease. Infection of the membranes surrounding the brain tissue will lead to paralysis of one side of the face. This is commonly referred to as facial palsy or Bell's palsy. This infection will also lead to labored muscle movement and impaired limbs. Facial palsy increases the eyes sensitivity to light causes a stiff neck and also promotes severe headaches. Patients will be bedridden at this stage as their mobility will be limited.
Impaired muscle movement will easily result in irregular heartbeats. Once the disease affects the heart muscles, heart problems will be inevitable. If Lyme disease treatment is not sought at this point, heart failure which may lead to death may develop.
Lyme disease symptoms may take weeks or even months to develop after tick bites. It is, therefore, easier to employ tick prevention and control strategies rather than dealing with the harmful effects of the disease. One of the most effective methods is tick spraying. This is especially recommended if you live in tick-infested areas. Having your yard sprayed on a routine basis will keep ticks away from the pets and people in your home. This will, therefore, keep the disease and its carriers at bay guaranteeing the safety of your family.

TICK-RELATED AILMENTS AND THEIR SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
Though the majority of the general public is probably aware of ticks and their existence in many regions of America, they might not be familiar with the potential problems these arachnids may bring into your home. The old thinking, prevention is worth a pound of cure, absolutely applies when it comes to keeping your home and family safe from significant illnesses that may arise from the bite of a tick. Taking time to review a few of the most common conditions and signs related to tick bites is definitely worth a few moments of your time.
Common Illnesses and Signs - Lyme Disease is a very well-known and widespread condition of tick bites. Nearly all cases are found in the Midwest and Northeastern areas of America. Once the bacteria enter the bloodstream, symptoms can start arising within the initial week following the bite. A circular pinkish rash may appear around the bite, but not usually. Other signs of infection are exhaustion, and flu-like signs, such as a fever, body pains, and chills.
The second most typical disease associated with ticks is Babesiosis.. This is a parasitical disease, unlike Lyme. When the parasites enter the bloodstream, they upsurge rapidly, and the individual may feel fevers and chills, as well as jaundice and anemia.
Another common tick-borne disease is Rickettsiosis, which includes many variants, one is that of Spotted Mountain Fever. This problem can arise quickly and can be lethal. As with the earlier mentioned diseases, medical indications include fever, chills, coughing, rashes and emotional confusion. Rickettsiosis was lethal in 30% of reported instances, but today's therapies have narrowed that amount to about 3-5%. It is still an extremely serious condition that must be treated rapidly with heavy antibiotics.
There are many additional tick-borne diseases beyond these most typical, and receiving quick treatment is always recommended. Most remedies require prescriptions of antibiotics implemented over some 2-4 weeks. This helps most patients combat the disease very effectively.
Finally, it is important to take precautions to lessen the chances of tick-borne health issues. If hiking in forests or ing extra tall grassy meadows, it would be smart to tuck in pant legs, work with some tick repellent on your skin, and wear garments that will protect your skin, and avoiding places that are regarded as tick-infested areas. Ticks like grassy meadows. Getting your yard and walkways around your house treated is another recommended precaution. Each of these preventative actions will help to keep you safe from tick-borne illnesses and disease.
THE POTENTIAL RISKS OF TICKS IN CONNECTICUT
Experts are predicting that year's tick population might be among the worst ever in Connecticut. Ideal conditions have resulted in an explosion of ticks. The most significant condition is the mild winter weather, which has given ticks the opportunity to prosper and emerge sooner than usual. For this reason, you need to safeguard your loved ones, dogs, and cats from ticks.
So what is the concern about an excessive infestation of ticks?
Below are a few of the potential risks posed by ticks
Like most pests, ticks are transmitters of disease. Perhaps one of the most dangerous ailments they transmit is tick-borne illness, an illness that affects thousands of Americans each year.
Ticks possess beak-like projections that allow them to plunge into the skin of the host animal, pet or person. They prey on the host's bloodstream and later transfer tick-borne diseases such as babesiosis, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, tularemia, etc.
Ticks: A few facts you should know
• Ticks are parasites because they prey on the host's blood.
• Although there is a large selection of ticks species, just a handful transmit diseases to humans. The most common in America is the black-legged tick, popularly referred to as a deer tick.
• Ticks become active and potentially dangerous when ground the temperatures are above 45 levels Fahrenheit
• If ticks infest your dwelling, they can live for long stretches if no measures are taken to control them.
• Tick populations are higher in towns, like Greenwich, that have very active deer in the area.
How to keep ticks out of your house
Because of their size, it is certainly easy to miss ticks on your clothing or body, or even in the hair of your pets. Still, with some vigilance, you can decrease the chances of carrying ticks into your home. If you are hiking, be sure you dress in long trousers and long sleeve shirts or outerwear. In addition, use tick repellant with DEET or have on clothes pretreated with permethrin. Once you return, conduct an intensive tick check. If you discover a tick, use tweezers to make an upward pull using caution to avoid leaving behind its mouthparts in your skin. Wash hands and bite area with cleaning soap and water. Get rid of the ticks by flushing or save those that you might want to have tested.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT TICKS
Imagine, after a nice walk through the park, you get home and find a small black spot on yourself or your pet. After close inspection, you realize it is a parasitic arachnid that has chosen you as a host. This unwelcome little guest is a tick. Ticks are tiny little parasitic creatures that can live in various natural settings. All they need is a host to carry them, and they can spread out of control, quickly. Ticks also carry with them a variety of serious diseases and illnesses that you or your pets can be subject to if left unchecked. Proper precautions should always be used when dealing with ticks to avoid the spread of any diseases.
Connecticut is a hotbed for ticks. Lyme disease is the most common illness spread by ticks. It comes from the spread of borrelia bacterium that is commonly hosted by ticks. If left untreated Lyme disease can cause loss of motor function in the face, heart palpitations, severe headaches, swelling of the joints and more.
Ticks are most commonly found in heavily wooded, grassy meadows, or bushy areas. So even common activities such as walking your dog, playing in your yard, or hiking can bring you in contact with these unsavory little creatures. While it is impossible to completely eliminate the risk of coming in contact with ticks, you can take some preventative measures.
Having your yard, or business sprayed for proper preventative tick control is a huge step in the right direction. This will help ensure that your pets, family, and yourself can rest easy in your own yard or property knowing that ticks will not be able to thrive where you live.
Ticks are nasty creatures that can leave a long-lasting impact on your life, or the lives of your pets unless you take the proper steps towards reducing your potential risk of contact. Removing a tick once it has latched on to a host can be a difficult task. It's always best to try and eliminate them before they even have the chance to infect your family.
