An important part of keeping your pets healthy is regularly checking for the presence of parasites such as fleas and ticks.
Ticks are bloodsucking parasites and are commonly found along the east coast of Australia - particularly in warm, humid regions.
One of the most common types of tick is the Paralysis Tick - a particularly nasty parasite that carries a deadly toxin which, when injected into its host, causes paralysis and, eventually, death.
If you live in an area where ticks are a problem, your dog should be checked daily for ticks during the summer. If you find a tick, consult your vet immediately for advice.
