Animal Care bvba - Vets small and large domestic animals


A tick quests in grass stems or low brushes for a passing host and latches on to it when it passes by. Once on the animal, the tick crawls to a spot where the skin is at its thinnest and firmly bites itself onto its host. It embeds itself into the skin, as it were. By sucking blood, the females can grow to a length of up to a centimetre.
