It seems that Paul & I have moved into a high tick area! we took both Oscar & Sam to the local Kurrajong vet the other day and she informed us that the area was bad for bush & paralysis ticks!. Shock horror I almost lost it at the vets I said that we frontline plus both dogs and should I get a tick collars for both the dogs? I understand they smell quite bad?. The vet also recommended a tick rinse that you could dab straight on the tick or rinse the dogs with it!. I'm so paranoid to take the dogs outside now and summer isn't here yet we are still in winter even though it has been a very mild winter here this year!.
Can anybody give me some good advise as what to do?. My Partner Paul found 2 bush ticks on him tonight and being a Registered Nurse knew exactly what to do he has only ever had one tick in his life and that was earlier this year.
