Scratching, biting, or licking of certain areas of the skin.
Once a tick comes in contact with your dogs’ skin it bites on it and digs a hole.
This might cause inflammation on their skin, which will make your dog want to scratch or bite that area constantly.
Constant head shakes.
This happens because a tick is stuck on your dog’s head or ears.
These 2 areas are sensitive and it will be irritating for your dog, that’s why he keeps on shaking his head or scratching his ears.
Your dog’s behavior will give him away. If you see your dog acting lethargic, winning or are out of sorts, it could be that they have ticks.
Always pay attention to your dog’s behavior.
