The purpose of this research study is to better understand how getting a dog or cat might change your use of tick prevention methods, your exposure to ticks, and how you think about these topics. This research is being done because Lyme disease is the most common tick transmitted disease in the United States and Wisconsin, and pet owners find ticks on themselves more often than people who don’t own pets.
Anyone age 18 or over that owns a dog or cat is invited to participate in this study.
The study involves completing two 5– to 10–minute surveys; the first survey upon enrollment, and the second later in the summer. You will also be asked to download the Tick App and join the Tick App Study.
