Dear community, I address to you with a concern I've got going in my mind. I've got an 8 month BC male pup and we go on regular walks to our local hill. There are some cows and some small animals around, he doesn't bother them much but my concern is that I find him often rolling on the dirt like from side to side. Just rubbing his back on dirt and sometimes cow shit. I haven't found any ticks or fleas on my dog and initially thought he might be rolling to scratch his back. Although I now think as I haven't found fleas or ticks it might be something that dogs do for some specific purpose? Maybe someone here has the same problem or has seen his dog do this. Thanks for your help!
Hi Everyone, my puppy is about 6 months old and able to start Bravecto. We've been using Vectra 3D with no ill effects besides being a little greasy for a day or two and I was wondering what the consensus is on the best and safest way to prevent ticks. We're pretty active and in PA so ticks are a big concern. Thanks!
We pulled a pretty engorged tick off Gabe tonight, and I pull ticks off pretty regularly, but it's hard to get them all before they bite. I'm also concerned that I've found some flea dirt on him. Frontline is clearly not working. He tested positive for lyme disease about a month and a half ago, and finished the 4 weeks of doxy about a week or so before he was attacked by another dog (and started 2 weeks of clavamox). I'm giving him some probiotics to help him get through the insane amount of abx he's been on lately, and his poop has stayed pretty normal looking throughout all of this, which I'm happy about. My biggest issue is- what can I use to repel the ticks? I'm open to any suggestions, I just want to know what people have had success with. I'm hoping they'll die soon, but we've already had some cooler nights (mid 30s or so) and they're still an issue. Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere, I tried searching a few times with no success.
