Case Studies


 The Big Tick Project

Case Study


Many of us have heard of cases of Lyme Disease in people but how
many dog owners are aware their dogs can catch the disease too?

Transmitted by an infected tick, the threat of Lyme Disease is being tracked by researchers at the
Big Tick Project which has the backing of TV naturalist Chris Packham.

As these two dog owners can testify, Lyme Disease is a debilitating condition that can be difficult to diagnose in both dogs and people too.

Crown House Vets are proud to be one of the UK vet practices taking part in the Big Tick Project this summer

and we’ll be carrying out tick checks on dogs coming into practice. The ticks we remove from your pets will be sent to Bristol for analysis and any dog owner whose pet takes part will receive a Big Tick Project certificate.

You can find out more about the project and how to protect your pet from ticks in the surgery or here
