Ticks have become a huge problem in recent years. They are spreading everywhere, and they can carry some scary diseases, such as Lyme disease and Babesia, that affect pets as well as people.
We need to understand that tick protection deserves a year-round attention!
Due to the mild winters, the tick population multiplied in the last few years and Lyme Disease and Babesia are not the only two illnesses we have to worry about! There are other viruses which can be more dangerous than Lyme disease like certain types of Tularemia, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever Bartonellosis, and Hepatozoonosis too. These diseases can present a serious risk to the health of dogs and to people. Pay attention to prevention and avoid serious problems caused by ticks!
“Dogs are very susceptible to tick bites and tickborne diseases. Vaccines are not available for most of the tickborne diseases that dogs can get, and they don’t keep the dogs from bringing ticks into your home. For these reasons, it’s important to use a tick preventive product on your dog.”
To reduce the chance of getting sick from tick bites:
- Check your pets for ticks daily even if you were on a small walk.
- If you see a tick on your dog, remove it immediately.
Finding effective and affordable tick repellent for your pet is not easy, because 100% protection does not exist on the market! You can use chemicals or bio repellents, but neither chemicals nor bio-oils and sprays will provide 100% protection. Well-known tick repellents include Fluralaner chewable tablets and Fipronil spot ons are 94-96% effective against these blood sucking parasites.
Most tick products contain an arsenal of chemicals, yet more and more animal caregivers are looking for non-toxic solutions to ticks and other pests. Including collars, topical treatments, sprays, and dusts are registered as pesticides and regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). “But here’s the ugly truth: Many of the pesticides allowed for use on pets are linked to serious health issues in people, such as cancer and neurological and respiratory problems. Pets can also suffer: Skin irritation, neurological problems, gastrointestinal disorders, and even organ failure have been reported as a result of pet poisonings.”
“Many vets count on the EPA to make sure that the products on the market are safe if used correctly.” says NRDC senior scientist Miriam Rotkin-Ellman. Unfortunately, the ingredients in these products are still quite dangerous, and regular use can result in unsafe exposure, particularly for children and pregnant women.
As ultrasonic technology is relatively new on the parasitic market, we are able to present official research materials that demonstrate the safety and efficacy of our products. In addition, with other repellents be chemical or non-chemical, Tickless has no side effects, not causing allergic reactions, adverse drug reactions, seizures, it is totally harmless for the user and the environment.
Tickless is clean, safe, ecologically friendly, and easy to use. Intended for preventive purposes, it works by emitting a series of ultrasound pulses that are harmless to us and our animals, but will disturb ticks, repelling them from pets and keeping them at bay.
Take steps to reduce your chances of being bitten by any tick. Use Tickless, which provides you a chemical free protection against tick bite.
