We know how important and loved our four legged friends are. We have the safest and most reliable treatments on the market to keep them tick free.

Darwin’s tropical climate is the perfect breeding ground for the brown dog tick. Infestations are common, especially in the early stages of the wet season.

How a tick treatment for dogs works

We have a variety of treatment options available for you depending on your situation and requirements.

Most importantly, early identification and prompt action is strongly recommended. Heavy infestations can be significantly harder to contain. Such infestations may require multiple treatments to break the life cycle of the tick.

You can also help assist us with a successful treatment. We strongly recommend that on the day of the treatment you take your dog for a hydrobath. This will kill any active ticks and fleas still on the dog and help minimise the risk of the ticks returning.

We would also recommend that you consider talking to your vet in regards to suitable tick prevention medication for your dog.

Tick Treatment

Health risks associated with ticks

Darwin’s brown dog ticks have been known to carry parasites that affect red blood cells.

They feed on the blood of their hosts. A dog infested with the brown dog tick can suffer life threatening anemia, a direct result of low red blood cells.
