5. Avoid Tick-Infested Areas: Avoiding areas where ticks are known to be prevalent, such as wooded areas or tall grass, can help reduce the risk of tick bites.
6. Use Tick Dips: Tick dips are a concentrated chemical solution that you dilute with water and apply to your dog’s coat to kill ticks. They are typically used in cases of severe tick infestations.
7. Keep Your Dog’s Bedding Clean: Regularly washing your dog’s bedding can help reduce the risk of tick infestations in your home.
