Some species of ticks can carry potentially fatal diseases that are transmitted when they bite your dog, and now is the time of year when some of them are most active and looking for hosts to feed from. To prevent the transmission of diseases, and to keep your dog more comfortable this summer, it's important to check your dog periodically for any unwanted parasitic hitchhikers before they can attach.So, how do you go about checking your dog over for ticks? Some dogs are easier to check than others. Longer hair coats tend to give ticks a better opportunity to hide deep in the fur where they can stay for a long time undiscovered, while shorter hair coats leave the surface of the skin more visible and easy to finger comb.This is especially important to do after your dog has spent time outdoors in areas where ticks are likely to be present. Even if your dog wears a tick preventive collar or is given a spot-on medication, it’s a good idea to run a quick check during the summer months.Starting at the head, run your hands over the dog’s body, checking under the collar, and using your fingers like the teeth of a comb, thoroughly check all of the body, making sure to look under the tail and around the . Ticks are drawn to the dark, hidden areas on the body, so be sure to check between the toes, as well as inside the and front legs (armpits).That said, ticks are a bit easier to spot on a dog’s body than smaller parasites; fleas, for example.

Ticks do not move around much once they find a location on the body and bury their head into the skin to feed. The longer they feed, the larger their bodies become as they fill with blood.The ears are another particularly attractive area for ticks to lodge, as they are dark, moist, and hidden. Check the ears thoroughly, inside and out, during every inspection. If your dog is shaking his head continuously and you can’t see anything in the outer ear canal, your veterinarian can inspect the inner canal of the ear more closely with a special instrument ().
