What Is A Tick?

Ticks are members of the arachnid family (related to spiders and scorpions) that feed off the blood of other animals. They can vary in length from 1mm to 1cm and have an egg-shaped body that becomes larger and darker as it fills with blood. Before feeding, they’re about the size of a sesame seed; after feeding they can grow as big as a coffee bean.

These parasites are most commonly found in wooded, grassy and heathland areas between spring and autumn, although they remain active throughout the year. Ticks don’t fly or jump; instead, they climb or drop on to animals and attach themselves using their mouth before feeding. They will usually feed on their host for a few days before dropping off once they’ve had enough.

Does Healthcare Cover Tick Treatments?

Regular parasite treatment is included as part of the Medivet Healthcare Plan. A cost-effective way to ensure your pet is protected from ticks all-year round.

How To Spot A Tick

Ticks are often big enough to see and they feel like a small bump on your pet’s skin. It’s a good idea to run your hands over your pet after they’ve been outdoors to check for lumps and bumps which may be a tick. Regular grooming sessions also provide a great opportunity to do this. Ticks tend to attach around the head, neck, ears and feet so be sure to pay attention to these areas.
