Watch out for ticks


Ticks can be a big problem in our pets and other animals such as Horses, Donkey’s and Cattle especially during the hot months and after rainfall. They can causes serious diseases such as Billary. These nasty critters can also cause skin infections and discomfort. Tick and flea control products can be brought from your vet and should be used as per instructions and on the advice of a veterinarian. You can also utilize the dip bath here at the SPCA for a small donation and also at Grahamstown Vets and dip can be purchased from the Clinic at the SPCA. During Tick and Flea season if using the dip facility it is advisable to do it monthly.
