    Dog Health Questions
    I have a 13lb Morkipoo. He is currently on Advantage multi but because it doesn't cover ticks and this season has been really bad so far I am switching him to Nexgard and Heartgard. The vet says I can give them at the same time or stagger them. What do you guys think? Would it be better to...

    So my dog came in with deer ticks the other day (Monday) and I just saw them today as they are engorged and she plucked about 60 of them off on my bed. What do I do next? Should I burn everything? I washed all the rugs and the blankets and the sheets, I have no carpeting, but I swept and...

    Attention All New Members
    I just got a 5mo puppy (Terrier) from a friend of my friend. The next day I found two ticks near the back of the ears so I took them off. I bathe him, and check for more ticks, but I didn't find any. Two days later (Yesterday) I was playing with him and I notice on his belly about 5 black...

  14. Do I REALLY need a flea repellant; if so, what???

    General Dog Forum
    My 9 lb bichon has very tightly curled fur, which I brush out constantly. She is outside in the AM and the PM to do her business (mere seconds, almost) and a couple of times through the day to lay on the deck and watch the birds. She hates grass and only goes on it when it's time to poo or pee...
  15. Ticks

    General Dog Forum
    Hi all I came across something a while ago that I would like to share with you. As my dog kept on coming home with ticks (and I hate them), I was on the lookout for something other than sprays or whatever and came across amberdog collars with integrated amber stones. I was sceptical at first but...
  16. Preventic collar use

    Dog Health Questions
    Greetings to Those in the Know, Can someone tell me how long to keep a Preventic collar on a dog? Do you keep it on all the time or just fit it the day before and remove it the day after you are out in a tick infested area? I do not plan to use any other tick protection. Thanks for any...
  17. Tick INFESTATION!! Ticks EVERYWHERE !!

    Dog Health Questions
    When I first noticed ticks on my dogs I called a professional to come out and spray. But the service was pathetic...a little spritz here and there with a little pump...not thorough at all. I've tried granuals for the yard, collars for the dogs, frontline for their backs and cheap shampoo...
