Tick-borne illnesses are on the rise. No matter where you live, you and your pets can be at risk for rickettsial diseases.

TickEncounter.org is a site that will tell you anything and everything you ever wanted to know about ticks. It offers up to date information and is a fantastic resource for your clients.

They also offer a "Tickspotting" service, so that individuals and participating veterinary clinics can submit photos of ticks (they provide a reference chart) and information about where it was found. They use crowd-sourced information to track various types of ticks around the country.
