We have found a few ticks on moose... what should we use to keep them off him? is there such a medicine?

He loves going through the bushes, trees, etc and exploring so keeping him from playing is pretty impossible.

I don't know of anything that prevents ticks from being attracted to dogs (or other animals, for that matter). They sure are gross. Must be hard to find on a dark dog, too.

I have posted this before,but here it is again:

Here is a wonderful recipe,that I have used for years with great success:

Fleas, Ticks, Mosquitoes, Fly Repellant
Ingredients are full strength oils: Tea Tree Oil, Rosemary Oil, Sage Oil,
Cedarwood Oil, Peppermint Oil, Sweet Orange Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Citronella,
Oil, Pine Needle Oil,
Directions: Mix 4-6 drops each with 32 oz of any natural shampoo and you now
have a natural flea shampoo, or

Mix 2-3 drops each with 16 oz. Water in a spray bottle. Shake before each
application and spray lightly over entire body.

Repels fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, flies and also makes the van smell great.
Spray dogs, and blankets. Use before going into the show ring instead of those
other sprays; no chemical smell spray. This stuff smells great, dogs look
great, give additional shine to their coat.

Do you have him on a flea & tick product like Frontline? If your area is that badly infested you may want to look into getting him the lyme disease vaccine. I don't know alot about the vaccine but when they thought Sam might have lyme we were told that if he had had the vaccine then the lyme test would probably come back positive whether he actually had it or not. But if it is effective then that shouldn't be a problem.

Sammie is on Frontline. I don't think it actually keeps the ticks off the dog, but kills them once they bite, reducing risk of lyme disease and making them much easier to remove.
