The BC Big Tick Project
The BC Big Tick Project is a collaboration between Merck Animal Health and the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC). The aim is to increase awareness of tick identification tools such as etick.ca, to support surveillance for the distribution of ticks and to determine the tick-borne pathogens that may be present in ticks collected from dogs and cats in British Columbia. This regional initiative provides valuable information to B.C. pet owners and veterinary hospitals regarding how best to protect pets against ticks and the diseases they may transmit.
To help your clinic promote this initiative, we have developed resources you can download for free below:
