Ticks are small brown bugs that are typically found in the woods and at times on our animals. Ticks do not cause any pain when the latch onto their host and can go unnoticed for any length of time. If you notice that your child has a tick on them then try and remove the tick at home. Always take care to try and remove the tick from the head. If this is difficult or you would feel better with a medical professional's help then do not hesitate to call our office! When planning on hiking or hunting in forrested areas be sure to check your children when you return. Start training their eyes to look for ticks as well!
