A horrible image was shared on social networks, showing a puppy with a severe case of ticks under his paw. The photo has already been shared by more than 16,000 Facebook users, who alert all dog owners: Don’t forget to check your dog’s paws!
While most dog owners are aware of the dangers of this prague, you need to keep in mind that ticks can hide under your pet’s paws. Thousands of people reacted to the image with much disgust:
“I felt sick and so guilty… I woke up my dogs and started checking their paws. Oh, I hate these parasites.” one user wrote. “After all these years, I’ve never thought of paws.”
You should always check your dog after a walk, as these small animals can transmit serious diseases to our pets and also humans. It is also important to remove them safely and effectively. The best way to remove a tick is by using tweezers, picking the tick as close to the skin as possible and separate it with strength and firmness.
It is the life of your pets that are at stake… Be alert to any signs and always check your animal. Share this important information with your friends and family!
