    Default Ticks

    This is just more of a warning to watch out for ticks. I just found one on Beefy on his little beefy. Be sure to check your babies.

    Yes I just watched the news about this...they had a veterinarian on there and everything. Saying this is one of the worst years for ticks. There have been so many pet getting ticks in the last couple of month! This is due to the awesome weather we all got to enjoy this winter

    You can also get frontline that is for fleas and ticks... might not be a bad idea this year! Great Thread!

    my boys get frontline and i spray the yard every year every couple of months. i hate using that stuff but if i dont these dogs would be tick filled as we live with woods around us. so i do it. i dont put anything on sarah anymore as spraying the yard usually takes care of any problems she might have had. if she gets fleas i will use frontline on her as i do with the boys.

    We dont have a lot of wood or ever had a problem with tics....We have always used Advantix on Brutus and Chanel 1x a month along with their heartworm pills. I belive if you use the Advantix/Frontline you dont have to worry as it repels

    Yepper, pulled three ticks off Nigel's ears last week so I gave Frontlined them. Ticks seem to be thick here in Nebraska from April to July. :/

    There's many more monthly topical's to apply for ticks and fleas, I picked up a product today at Walmart. We never had to use anything like that but it's never been a year like this one in the N east. the product i bought is called Adams. Three applications for 15.00 then the applicator was 8.00 with a month supply. So that's like 23.00 per dog for the summer. Not too shabby seeing I got 5 critters to treat.

    Please be careful with the ticks. They can cause kidney disease if untreated.

    We use Frontline but still get an occasional tick here and there. More so on my GS I think due to her hair. This is Oklahoma, no avoiding ticks and chiggers. We treat out yard and use Frontline religiously around here.

    Speaking of chiggers, I'll tell ya'll something funny. This is something I'll tell all of my son's girlfriends about when he gets older. He was 6 yrs old, he's 8 now, and he had played outside and got a few chigger bites in a rather private area. The best I have found to stop the itch is to use fingernail polish. I looked all over and the only polish I could find was blue. He thought having that blue polish down there was the funniest thing ever. He went to his grandma's house that evening and said "Look Mama, I have blue balls!"
