I've just realised that ther are TICKS in my dog! He's been kinda of moody and unhappy, from d way tat when u call him for his treats, he did nt even response! Is it due to the ticks in him, which irritates him, thus he's being his weird self?
I've also bath my dog yesterday, and applied frontline on him. But usually how often do i have to reapply frontline on him?
Is there any ways to completely kill the ticks, without having to "disturb" my dog?
it pains me to see him in itch, and i hope someone would be able to advise me.
By the way, my main concern, will the ticks harm my dog and led to the death of my dog??
Frontline should be applied every 4 weeks I believe, it's a monthly treatment.
When my cats/dog get ticks, I take a cotton ball and put peroxide on it, then hold it down on the spot where the tick is. (This kills the tick) then I remove it with tweezers, be sure to get the ENTIRE tick out, including the claws that are inside the skin.
I know my pup had a shot to prevent lymes disease, if yours has you don't ahve to worry about disease, but keep an eye on him and you can always call the vet.
Frontline once a month should help..You need to know that it does repel the ticks and fleas. They have to attach themselves to the skin before they will die. I hate this time of the year because of ticks but we live in Mississippi and have fleas all year round. If they get bad I give them something called Capstar which is a pill that kills them within a half an hour and always bathe them in a flea shampoo
actually colliemom, with frontline plus fleas just have to touch a hair follicle to feel the effects of it. Even a shed hair on the carpet can still kill a flea on a frontline treated dogs. Capstar is a great product, but it only kills fleas, not ticks. Ticks however, are a little different. They're tough little suckers, and it may take a few hours for them to be killed by any medication. If you see one, use a cottonball of rubbing alcohol or peroxide to get it to detach and throw it away. Advantix is the only product that supposedly kills and repels fleas, ticks and mosquitos. None of the others really do.
