Hitchhiker's - Did your dog bring home, a not so friendly, friend?

We have had a real tick problem this summer in Arizona. The worst I have experienced since purchasing the Dog Wash. We have had a lot of dogs come in with ticks, some client knew they had them some didn't. In order to protect your dogs and everyone else's dogs, we check your dogs when they first come in now. If we see any ticks, your dog will get a tick bath and a bio spot treatment on the shoulders. This treatment is good for 30 days and is an additional cost of $15.

I know there are a lot of questions to be answered. The most frequent question is, "How do I know if I have a tick problem?"

Our pest control person was out last week and I asked him how I would be able to tell if we were infested with ticks. His reply, was really simple. He said that when you are infested he can tell by the way a tick infestation smells. He also, checks all cracks in the floor around the doors in walls. We were clear. No ticks in all the cracks we have. He also, said that ticks will climb up the walls.

These are just a few of the ways to tell if you have a tick problem. Like I said, this is a huge topic of discussion and we will more than likely cover more on it.
