Ticks carry several deadly diseases, so it’s important to regularly check for and remove them from your dog. Ticks can be tricky to find so here are five places you should always check for ticks on your dog. Dogs are curious creatures, so it’s important to always check their head and ears. Ticks usually hide in places where they can’t be found. This is why it’s good to check in between your dog’s toes. Don’t forget to check the tail, as ticks love dark, moist areas. The eyelids are a place that many dog owners may forget to check. However, ticks can easily be mistaken for skin tags or eye discharge. If your dog wears a collar then it's a good idea to regularly take it off to check for ticks that may have hidden underneath it.
