  1. my grey had a small rash on her that has since faded but she has this dark lump on her stomach. is this a tick?? or any ideas on what it is? i tried to remove but no luck. she doesn’t seem bothered by it.
  2. Hi amazing forum folks, hoping you can help me out with some tick advice. I've had a Seresto collar on Pauli since August 1, shortly after adopting her, and she hasn't taken it off/been bathed/gone swimming at any point since then. At first it seemed to be working well, as I was finding a number of dead ticks on her bed--unpleasant, but if they're dead the collar is doing its job! I noticed more dead ticks seemed to appear when we walked in a certain area, so started avoiding that area, and things were going well. Starting in mid-September, however, things started getting much wors
  3. https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/08/us-invaded-by-savage-tick-that-sucks-animals-dry-spawns-without-mating/ Posted as an FYI. No known diseases in the US from them yet according to the article, but they are known to carry numerous diseases where they originated overseas.
  4. Any advice on flea & tick prevention? We're as holistic as possible and use a natural spray + essences to strengthen their immune system. The ticks persist. I don't trust that the Seresto collar is not toxic. Has anyone used the Mercola collar and products successfully? Thx!
  5. Cooper has dug herself a nice trench under a tree and enjoys laying in it on hot days. She is on Heartgard and Seresto but do these protect against whatever little buggers that could be lurking in the soil?
  6. Merck announced that they've received FDA approval for their oral tick and flea medicine, BRAVECTO. From the press release: "Merck Animal Health (known as MSD Animal Health outside the United States and Canada) today announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval of BRAVECTO™ (fluralaner) chewable tablets for dogs (112.5 mg, 250 mg, 500 mg, 1000 mg, 1400 mg). BRAVECTO is the first and only treatment that has been shown to quickly and effectively kill fleas and multiple tick species for 12 weeks in a single dose. BRAVECTO also is effective for eight weeks against Amblyomma amer
  7. A few days ago I felt several small, pimple-like bumps on my dog's chest, under his leg-pits and a few other places. They look like bug bites. I carefully investigated, worried they might be ticks, but I don't see anything. The other night he was, for the first time, snuggling with me on the loveseat. As I made him move to get up, I saw a small, black spot move on his white fur. I tried to pinch it off, but it moved fast and buried into his fur. Then I went over him very carefully and either saw the same one or another one, which again I couldn't pinch. I took a comb and combed through his fur
  8. Hi everyone- I was at the beach with my Winnie last week and we both came back home carrying ticks on us! I got this new anti-tick treatment at my vet's and was wondering if anyone had used it before (I'm always nervous using new stuff on her). It's called Activyl Tick Plus. Thanks!
  9. As many of you know, I no longer have Greyhounds, but still have sighthounds (Borzoi and a Deerhound). Henley, the four year old Borzoi, had an exam recently, and was diagnosed with Lyme disease. He's on doxycycline, and doing fine. But this brings some questions to my mind: should I vaccinate the others (assuming they titer within tolerances)? What are the pros and cons of vaccinating? In researching, it seems that the vaccine is not always effective, and may cause a severe case of Lyme that is untreatable. But in discussing this with my vet today, he says this is old information, and the
  10. So I just got my first foster this past week, yay! He is such a sweetheart but I feel so bad for him because it looks like he's has some pretty nasty fleas and ticks. So far what I've done is I have applied some frontline that the rescue group gave me, I've given him a bath, gave him a heartworm med that also kills fleas, and then when he kept itching I gave him a bath in dawn dishsoap so that I could try and kill more of the fleas. I think I've gotten the flea part almost under control now, and the itching hasn't been nearly as bad as day 1, but the ticks just have death grip on him.
