I went to my pet store today where a vet works I discussed the tick problem with her she told me to get Oscar off frontline plus ASAP and put him on Advantix for dogs it seems strange that it only happens to Oscar and not Sam?. though Oscar is lower to the ground than Sam & sticks his snout into things more?. she also advised a flea and tick rinse which I can dab on the tick or rinse him with the solution with water. I only ever needed to frontline the dogs once a month now I going to do it fortnightly!. has anybody heard of these organic flea and tick collars? are they effective?. the vet told me not to use a normal flea and tick collar so I'm now really worried and slightly paranoid as in Oscar's 10 years 8 months he has never had this problem and to see him go thru this upsets me more than it does him!. I read about this Lyme disease all the time on here we don't have that issue here in Australia?.
Any advise to my above predicament?.
