"The female swells up and lays anywhere from a thousand to three thousand eggs," said Dr. Early.
One look at ticks will make your skin crawl, so imagine the pain your pet feels when a tick latches onto their skin.
"They'll be a male and a female, stuck with their snouts into your dog, sucking blood and raising ticks and laying eggs," he said.
Dr. Early added that it's not just one tick, but a family of ticks that can latch on to your pet. Not treating your dog, will kill it.
A new chewy tab is now available for pets, and Dr. Early said it works wonders.
"You just give it a chewy tab, and it takes the ticks off the dog for about a month," he said.
The method you decide to treat your pet for ticks is up to you, but the most important part, is to get it done quickly.
