Tick Risk

Our tick tent roadshow in 2017 has discovered that many people across the UK are unfamiliar with the threat of ticks when going out and about during daily life. The more you know about ticks and the dangers they present to both yourself and your pets, the easier it is to protect against them.

Explore the links below to gain insight into tick-borne diseases, how to protect your pet against ticks and what to do if you find a tick on yourself or your pet.

Back the campaign

We have joined forces with vets across the country to call on the Government to get a comprehensive tick control programme reinstated into the Pet Travel Scheme so that trips abroad with our pets stay safe and UK dogs are not exposed to the risk of imported tick-borne disease. A big thank you to everyone who has supported this campaign.

Thank you for your support
