Research Updates

Here, we share recent relevant research related to ticks and companion animals. We will continually update this page as research becomes available. If summaries are targeted towards veterinarians (as they relate to the practice of clinical medicine), this is indicated.

In 2016, Dr. Scott Weese of the Ontario Veterinary College launched the Pet Tick Tracker to help monitor changes in tick populations. Through this online tool, pet owners could submit reports of tick findings - and the response was overwhelming! He's now teamed up with Drs. Katie Clow and Michelle Evason to create Pets and Ticks - a comprehensive website that brings the Pet Tick Tracker together with up-to-date, evidence-based information on ticks in Canada.
