IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INTERSTATE TRAVELLERS
Ehrlichia Canis warning.
Ehrlichia Canis is a bacterium transmitted by the brown dog tick. This can cause serious, potentially life threatening tick fever disease in your dog. It was first reported in Australia in May 2020 and ideal conditions are tropical or sub-tropical locations, such as northern Australia. We have heard of a case being identified in Victoria. If you are planning on travelling north with your dog, we recommend using either Advantix or Seresto as these have been shown to be the most effective forms of preventative, with a >90% efficacy rate. It appears that our standard tick preventatives are not effective for this disease, but still are great for the southern regions. Please note: Advantix ingestion by cats can prove fatal so we would not recommend using this product if you are also travelling with your cat or if your cat has close contact with your dog.
