Hi!
this is the second time i found ticks on my cookie.
First was only one and it hasn’t fed on any blood.
but today i found 2 ticks both seems to have been feeding for 2 days or so. I Brush his hair daily, everyday before going on walk. And after walk I always check him for any weird objects stuck on his fur and skin.
And yet, i still missed these 2 ticks that attached on his head (ugh).
i think tick season is starting here. And I can’t stop cookie from going to grasses. Because he loves marking on trees. Which i limit now ever since i found his first tick.
Any tips on how to prevent tick & fleas ?
product or recipe ?
And what to do if found any on dog ?
thank you so much! This is going to be very helpful.

Recommend Bravecto - a chew that you give every three months. We have more than our share of fleas and ticks so it was great to find a product like Bravecto. The price may be high you think but if you spread it across the 3 months it seems reasonable. Never had a problem with Bravecto.

hi
I have to give him worm med every 3 months too. Will this be alright giving 2 of them to him at the same time?

What brand/type is it? I think it should be fine.

We use Seresto collars. They work really well, although you might find a few on the rear. Also, I’ve found by accident that using medical alcohol pads to grab onto the ticks make them let go almost instantly.

Hard to say what the interactions might be without knowing the active ingredients in the dewormer. It's probably a good idea to ask a veterinarian or a pharmacist.
