If your pet gets a tick, you can call our team for quick, effective tick removal.
Our team at Animal Ark Elkin Veterinary Hospital wants to help you take the best possible care of your pets, and an important part of doing that is helping you protect them from ticks. These tiny insects are known carriers of Lyme disease, and a tick bite could expose your pet to this serious illness. Ticks latch onto people and animals in order to feed on their blood, and they can remain attached for up to 48 hours, which is ample time for any bacteria they are carrying to spread to their host. We recommend regularly checking your pet for ticks, especially if you take them outside, and if you find one, call our team right away to get effective tick removal treatment.
At Animal Ark Elkin Veterinary Hospital, we have extensive experience with tick removal, and you can count on us to remove them safely every time. It is possible to remove ticks safely at home if you’re careful and know what you’re doing, but for best results, it’s still best to go to a professional. While you’re here, we can provide tips on how to more effectively prevent your pets from being exposed to these insects, as well as demonstrate the proper technique for removing them so that you know what to do in the future.
We at Animal Ark Elkin Veterinary Hospital are proud to serve the Elkin, North Carolina community, and we want to help you keep your pets happy and healthy. If you find a tick on your pet, come see our team as soon as possible to get our effective tick removal services.
