Be Tick Aware

Ticks are becoming more abundant across the UK and for longer periods so it is important to be tick aware and to check your dogs if they have been in undergrowth etc as ticks can carry dangerous diseases.  Normally they are not so common in urban areas but over the last few weeks we have had a number of customers that have let us know their dogs have picked up ticks whilst walking along the Water of Leith (thanks Alasdair with Tula, Sarah with Tansy and Janey with Tess).

We are always well stocked with the best selling "tick twisters" which are the most effective tick removal tool on the market (for dogs and humans alike) and it is also worth checking if your pet is up to date with flea/tick treatments.  Whilst they are not fullproof they can be very useful as a preventative.
