George said:My vet said this is the worst year he has seen for ticks.
We were contacted by a young lady that bought a pup from us and she has a 1 acre fenced lot with " lots of trees " and her pup was acting listless so she took him to her vet,
The vet dipped him and got 45 ticks! She took him home and took a shower with him and found 10 more!
The vet I use is an old timer (72) and instead of the expensive heart worm and flea medicines for dogs has me use Zimecterin and with that it takes very hlittle ( one notch on the plunger ) every 30 days.
My dogs still have gotten an ocasional tick but I feel if I did not find it and remove it the tick would die as since doing this I no longer find any bloated ticks. I feel I'm finding them before they die and fall off.
The young lady said they had been using Advantage and her vet recommended to go to every 2 weeks instead of once a month untill the wet weather subsides. That stuff is about $30.00 a treatment if I remember right.
Do any of you use Zemecterin of fleas, ticks, heartworms on your dogs?
