[Giveaway] Lyme Disease Awareness Month Sweepstakes
Warm weather has finally arrived, and many dog parents are looking forward to spending more time outside. With warm weather comes ticks, and the risk of contracting tick-borne infections like Lyme disease.
Lyme disease causes symptoms like fever, fatigue, and joint pain that can sometimes last for years. It can affect humans, dogs, and in rare cases, cats. Ticks hang out in wooded areas and fields and cling to people and animals as they walk by. Parks, backyards, and any place where wild animals pass through may be home to ticks and other parasites.
Fortunately, you can prevent Lyme disease by checking yourself, your dog, and your family members for ticks before going inside after spending time in an area that may have ticks. You may be able to remove a tick before they latch or hitch a ride into your home.
Enter the 1-800-PetMeds® Lyme Disease Awareness Month Sweepstakes for a chance to win a TickSee Tick Removal Kit. The kit contains a hands-free LED flashlight, TickKey tick removal tool, alcohol swabs and instructions.
The 1-800-PetMeds® Lyme Disease Awareness Month Sweepstakes will run from Monday 05/04 through midnight Sunday 05/31. Everyone who enters from 12:01 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) May 4, 2020 to May 31, 2020 at 11:59 PM EDT is eligible to win. To enter, visit the Lyme Disease Awareness Sweepstakes page. Five winners will be chosen and notified on the four subsequent Mondays after the sweepstakes starts (5/11, 5/18, 5/25, 6/1) for a total of 20 winners.
The TickSee Tick Removal Kit is the perfect product to help keep you prepared in case you find a tick on your pet. The included flashlight, removal tool, and alcohol swabs are all you need to safely and effectively remove a tick from your pet without the use of pesticides or other chemicals.
When removing ticks from your pet, it’s important to do it carefully because they can burrow their mouthparts into the skin. If a tick is removed improperly, it can regurgitate Lyme-infected fluids into your pet. The TickSee Tick Removal Kit helps you properly remove ticks; lowering the chance your pet would contract Lyme disease.
