Dr. Gramlich is a 2008 graduate of North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. After completing a one-year emergency internship in Rhode Island, she spent five years working as a small animal general practitioner in New Hampshire.


I got to see Dr. Little speak at the AVMA conference and she really is passionate about ticks.  It's awesome to see a veterinarian completely enamored in his or her specialty, even if I think ticks are disgusting. 

It's important to know the different tick species in your area and the various diseases that they carry.  Owners will definitely bring in tick specimens when they find them and it will be up to you to identify them on the spot.

Here is a little video that talks about the characteristics of various species of ticks.
