Tick Prevention

Medication that prevents ticks has been changing each year.  Many people are using medications that either don’t work well, are given at the wrong dose or at incorrect intervals.


No tick prevention is ever 100%. You should search your pets daily in tick areas between August and February. The peak season is in October.


For the most up-to-date tick prevention, drop into Pittwater Animal Hospital. We can weigh your pet and tailor the best medication for them. Our reminder system will then prompt you when the medication is due.

We are really excited about the new long acting spot-on treatments for tick protection in dogs and cats. Come into Pittwater for your medication and we can apply the product, give you a certificate of tick protection and an automatic reminder will be sent when your pet is next due.
