The New tick in town
Amblyomma americanum, also known as the Lone Star Tick, the Northeastern Water Tick, or the Turkey Tick, is a type of tick indigenous to much of the eastern United States and Mexico, that bites painlessly and commonly goes unnoticed, remaining attached to its host for as long as seven days until it is fully engorged with blood.
It lives in wooded areas, particularly in second-growth forests with thick underbrush, where white-tailed deer (the primary host of mature ticks) reside. Lone star ticks can also be found in ecotonal areas (transition zones between different biomes) such as those between forest and grassland ecosystems. The lone star tick utilizes thick underbrush or high grass to attach to its host by way of questing.
WARNING: Parasite/flea preventatives are prescription medications and can potentially be lethal for unhealthy pets and should never be administered to geriatric or sick pets without first being seen by a veterinarian. For juvenile and adult pets, the Veterinarian should have an up-to-date history and doctor/patient relationship.
