    Default Flea and Tick Treatment

    Since we didn't have much of a winter here in Kansas. Summer started early and I already found a tick on Tess. So what's a good flea and tick treatment for my EB??

    I like to spray my bullies with a lemon juice and water mixture. It's always worked for us to prevent fleas and ticks.
    I have only found one tick on them ever and it was on Tank's jowel (a place where I hadn't applied the lemon juice mix because I don't put it on their faces).

    I was just talking about this yesterday with my pharmacist. She has done alot of work researching the chemicals used in these items and she says the absolute worse one out there is Frontline. The chemicals are so toxic, they had to fight with the FDA to even get the item on the market. She has a print out of the toxicity of all the products...I'm going to make a copy of it and scan it. These products scare me. I just googled "toxicity of flea medication" and the stuff that came up had me gasping. Luckily, I've never had a problem with flea or ticks with any of my pets.

    I was given Frontline by the vet but I haven't used it.
    I just got a bad feeling not to use it.
    At this point I'm not even sure myself what to use.

    How much lemon juice and water do you use for the mixture?
    And how often do you apply?

    I do about 1/4 lemon juice to 3/4 water. I apply it once a week to everywhere but the face (you can spray some on your hands and rub on the ears but stay away from the eyes just in case)

    I would do my homework on any products with chemicals(pesticides) before putting it on your dog. I took my dog to the vet and he gave me vectra 3d. First month use was fine then when we applied the second months treatment i found hair loss 8 days later all on his back because of the treatment. He is going to the vet today and i am hoping its not causing any further damage or the hair loss will not be permanent. Just inform yourself cause i made that mistake and feel so bad for my pup
