Canine ehrlichiosis, also known as hemorrhagic fever, is an infectious tick-borne illness that affects a dog’s blood cells.
Lyme disease is an infectious disease spread by ticks. Typical symptoms in dogs include lameness, fever, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes and joints and loss of appetite.
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is a disease that occurs in dogs and humans, caused by an infectious bacterium called Rickettsia rickettsii. It is one of the most common disease in dogs and it often transmitted through the bites of infected ticks.
Pale gums are identified when the normal light pink color of the gum tissues turn pale or white, indicating a serious underlying condition.
A flea allergy, or flea allergy dermatitis, is an inflammatory response to flea bites,
Fleas are parasitic insects: they live on the skin and eat the blood of their hosts.
Tick paralysis is primarily a disease of Australian cats with only rare occurrences reported in North American
Feline hepatozoonosis is an uncommon disease caused by several different parasitic species of Hepatozoon protozoa
Ticks are skin parasites; they live on the skin and eat the blood of their hosts. They can consume enough blood to make a host anemic.
Tick paralysis, or tick toxicity, is a quick acting, progressive disease that can cause extreme harm to a dog (and humans).
Ticks are small, parasitic arachnids found worldwide year round. Ticks feed on the blood of their hosts which allows them to transmit diseases
Cats are particularly sensitive to many flea and tick medications, and exposure to formulations that are not specifically approved for feline use can be fatal.
Flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) is a skin disease that results when a cat develops an allergy to flea saliva. The body treats the allergen as a harmful substance and reacts disproportionately.
Cats are considered resistant to Lyme disease, with no naturally occurring cases of this illness reported.
The sensation of itchiness (pruritus) in a cat can be caused by many things, most often fungal infections (ringworm), parasites (like fleas or mites), and allergies (to food, fleas, or airborne particles).
Fleas are irritating parasitic insects that reside and feed on the skin of animal hosts, including cats. Fleas are found worldwide and year round. Cats may be exposed to fleas at any time,
Poisoning as a result of exposure to flea and tick products is one of the most common types of poisoning in dogs. Symptoms of poisoning from flea and tick medication range from drooling,
Itchy skin, or pruritus, is a common symptom of multiple conditions. Scratching, rubbing, licking, and chewing are the most common signs shown by itchy dogs.

Lyme disease is caused by the tick-borne bacteria *Borrelia burgdorferi*. Horses become infected with the bacteria when an infected tick feeds on them.
Ticks are small parasitic arachnids and carry a number of different diseases that can transmit to mammalian hosts. The outdoor lifestyle of horses makes them susceptible to tick infestation,
Piroplasmosis is a tick-borne parasitic disease of horses. Most infected horses do not develop symptoms of piroplasmosis.
Tick paralysis results when a tick’s saliva delivers a paralytic toxin into the bloodstream of its host. Equine tick paralysis is rare, as horses seem to be resistant to most tick toxins.
Subcutaneous lumps are found under the skin, rather than within the skin or at the surface of the skin. If a lump does not create a visible mark or disruption on the skin, doesn’t arise from the bone, and the skin moves freely over it, it is a subcutaneous lump.
Hepatozoonosis is a tick-borne protozoal infection in dogs.
Anaplasmosis is an infectious, tick-borne disease that affects horses caused by the bacteria Anaplasma phagocytophilum.
Cutaneous lumps are lumps within a dog’s skin which make a nodule, raised area, or discoloration on the surface of the skin.
