What should I do if my pet has a tick?

Ticks can be picked up easily and can carry a variety of nasty diseases which can affect both you and your pet. Nine Mile Veterinary Group recommend the use of a monthly spot-on to repel and kill ticks.

Please call your local Nine Mile Vet clinic to discuss suitable options to protect your pet.

If your pet has a tick on them then Nine Mile vets recommend using a tick remover, which can be purchased from any of our clinics. Do not just pull the tick off as there is a risk of leaving the mouthparts in place which can lead to infection. Please call your local Nine Mile Vet clinic for specific advice or to make an appointment.
