    As you can see the hair is already falling out and it's really red. It looks much better than yesterday though.

    Really frustrating that the treatments are all so segregated. Like you can do Fleas and Ticks, but you have to have another product for ringworm.

    If you really want to do it right, you probably need 3 products. Three poisons pumped into your little pup, to make their blood toxic to the nervous systems of insects. Boy that's healthy ..... :-/ .... no possible way it might actually be toxic to the dogs nervous system either riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight?

    Trifexis which does all three is pretty much poison to the dog ... sigh.
    It's horrible for them, which is why I don't give her anything for ticks. We were in the woods at my parents house a few weeks ago and I just now found it. They are sneaky little f'ers.

    The day before Maude was spayed last week, I noticed a small lump on her side. The hair was missing a little and I could see two holes, which if I squeezed, blood would come out. When I took her in to be spayed, I told the Vet to check it out while she was asleep. It turned out to be a spider bite! He had shaved the area, and I am putting recommended antibiotic cream on twice a day. So glad I saw it! It actually looks like fang marks! As for ticks, I am out in the fields alot,as I've always had horses,cows donks, etc. and have had alot more ticks than my dogs get. After I get the tick off, the area turns red, and itchy and it usually swells, and it takes weeks before it goes away. I, after many years have discovered, I get more ticks after being under trees(wooded area) than I do off the grass. I think they wait to dive on ya' ha!hA! So glad that your baby will be okay-we are with you!

    Yikes! That's interesting that the scab can come up later and take 6 weeks to fully heal. Glad you got her in. That picture looks sore too. Poor thing.

    I can't believe you found a spider bite...so scary. I've had a tick on me before and I still have a mark from it. I just didn't think with dogs they got that bad. She really had a bad reaction to it.

    It's very sore, she's quite crabby when I go to clean it.

    Ruthie's tick spot is healing very nicely. The scab came off yesterday, it's a little red still so I've been putting ointment on it. Still gonna take a bit to fully heal. -scab-1-jpg-scab-2-jpg

    Glad that Ruthie is doing well! Maude(who had a spider bite) is also healing well. Hers looks like she will have a raised scar-but she'll still be beautiful!!

    That's EXACTLY how our Bentley looks! Husband found his first tick a few days ago and now the same thing. Then last night we found another one on him. Luckily we got it right away. WE have NEVER had problems with ticks before. Cant understand why so many this year. Bent's an indoor dog but on our walks he does get in some "brush" and "weeds" along the walkway that we walk on. Broke down and gave him a "treatment" last night and now today he's shedding like CRAZY!!!

    The first warm week of the year Henry had 4 ticks. I broke down and gave him the frontline plus. It took until the second treatment until I didn't find any more ticks. Every bite that he has still has a bump. Not red or infected just a bump. He has 6 or 7!! The ticks around here are awful! I find them on us or in the house sometimes. I know the medicine is poison but it's a toss up as to which is worse. I've always used frontline on my dogs. I never thought about how bad it was until Henry. I had a dog some years ago that would get sick from one tick bite. I used the meds on him constantly. The ticks were much worse than the poison. It's hard knowing you give that toxic crap to your loved one. I will continue to use it for the summer. I hope it's the right choice.
