Common Ticks in Canada

  • Deer Tick or Western Black-Legged Tick
  • The Lone Star Tick
  • American Dog Tick
  • Brown Dog Tick

Keep an eye out for these pesky friends when out walking your dog. When getting home after a walk, take the time to run a comb or a lint roller over your dog, to make sure no tick has hitched a ride home on your family member.
