Ticks are potentially disease carrying parasites that attach to pets as well as people. They are a bigger problem in the spring and autumn, but actually we see ticks attached to pets right through the summer months also. The exposure to ticks and the risk of infection depends on the area visited and we see far more ticks around North Berwick than other areas in general. However, any dog or cat that visits woodlands, sheep pastures and heather covered hillsides may be at risk.

Ticks are notorious to hill walkers as they transmit Lyme Disease which we also see in dogs and cats, along with other infections, so any tick infestation must be dealt with immediately or ideally avoided in the first place.
