Tick-Borne Diseases

Brown dog tick - Rhipicephalus sanguineus

Ticks are well designed to transmit disease agents such as viruses, bacteria and protozoa. Ticks attach securely to their hosts, facilitating not only effective transmission of infectious agents, but also the spread of both ticks and microorganisms to different geographical habitats via traveling pets.
