Common Ticks in Canada

With our crazy Canadian winter this year with the temperatures going up and down, we thought we send out a reminder that ticks are out there with temperatures as low as 4 degrees. 

Here are some of the most common ticks we see in our area:

  • 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.
