Ticks and taking my pet on holiday

I'm looking at taking my pet on holiday in a few weeks. Does anyone have any suggestions about how I can prepare my animal, do I need to be concerned about Ticks etc, what I should consider etc?

I read somewhere that the paralysis tick can lay up to 3,000 eggs.

Female Ticks are the worst and August through February is the worst time of year for ticks.

My dog had a tick once, the way we found out was it's back legs got pretty weak and he kept sitting down all the time.

We found a little bump like a little growth or mole near his hear which we didn't remember feeling before. It turned out to be a tick, luckily we got him to a vets asap and he was fine afterwards.

Make sure you pet is up to date with it's Tick Treatment. Ticks can easily kill a cat or dog it's not worth the risk. Ticks just love areas like campsites and the countryside so be really careful in those areas even if treated.
