The Big Tick Tour

Over the next few months, The Big Tick team will be touring the country with our Big Tick Tent. Our team will be on hand to answer any questions you have about protecting your dog from the threat of ticks this summer, and how to safely remove them if you do find them on your pets. The team will also be explaining the different treatment options available so you can go and speak to your vet practice.
