For the last couple of nights, I've found 20 - 30 dead ticks on my dog's bedding when he gets up each morning. I clean them up, and then there are more back again the next morning.
My dog is outside in my yard for most of the day and sleeps on this bedding in his crate inside our house at night. I recently switched him from Frontline to Vectra 3D. The first dose of Vectra was applied around 7 days ago. He's a 7 month old goldendoodle puppy.
What's going on here? I'm guessing that maybe he's picking up ticks during the day, then the Vectra 3D kills them overnight and they drop off in his crate? Or, since all of the ticks look fully engorged maybe the Vectra just isn't working and they're dropping off on their own because they're full?
Either way, how can I stop this? It's pretty gross to see a pile of ticks in your house every morning, and we're also worried that they're dropping off in other places as he walks through the house.
