What can I do about the ticks here in Texas?
Keep your room, or wherever your pet stays, clean so if a tick is spotted, you can easy get it off. Daily check your pet for ticks and have any removed immediately. Invest in a quality spot tick and flea treatment. It is easy to use, just drops of liquid on the back of your pets once a month, and this provides instant and lasting protection against ticks, fleas, and often other bad things. Ask a local vet for recommendations, but ordering your prevention treatment online will save you money.
