You won't believe what's on this microscope slide.
Check the second image to find out… These are Ticks!
During this time of year (late summer/early fall) they are molting from the larval to the nymph stage. This means they can be anywhere from the size of a grain of sand to a Poppyseed😲
Ticks can carry a multitude of harmful diseases, including Lyme disease.
As you can imagine it's nearly impossible to see ticks this small on most of our pets. This is why it's recommended to keep your pet on a veterinary approved preventative all year round to protect them.
