2017 National Tick Awareness Month - Social Media Posts

February 22, 2017

National Tick Awareness Month provides an ideal opportunity for you to further position your clinic as pet owners' go-to source of information and advice about tick behaviour, risks, and control.

One fun, informal way to do this is by reaching out to pet owners on social media sites. To help you get started, we've created the following consumer-friendly content and visuals you can "cut and post" on your clinic Facebook page or tweet to your followers.

Did you know ticks are arachnids, relatives of spiders, mites
and scorpions? They survive by feeding on the blood of animals
and humans. #TickTalk #TickAwareness #DogHealth
