Hi, can anyone tell me a better and economical way to get rid of ticks! I have to apply 'Frontline' monthly on my pincher. These ticks keep coming back and into her ears and it is a problem to get them out.

Re: Ticks!
Hi Shirley,

Just put few drops of apple cider vinegar in ur furry baby's water and feed your pincher with Brewer''s Yeast, it has formulated with garlic ...both can naturally deter ticks/fleas/other small insects away.
Please don't squish ticks, it will make matters worst just slowly pull it by tweezers one by one after a good bath of tick shampoo, just put those ticks inside the water with detergent and clorox, flush them away or inside in a tight container with alcohol in it.
It is very useful for the vet. He/She can make further tests since the vet has the full idea of the tick that bites ur dog. A good vet can give you also good medicine and further advices.

You have to start vacuum and spraying around ur home especially dark corner areas, wall, ceilings and where ur pet plays and sleep.

Kindly give ur dog a tick collar too...some dogs are allergic to it and some collars are not working at all.

Tick is more harder than fleas .. it can climb walls during hot season and lay their eggs. Their eggs/larvae are microscopic too.

Ticks can cause the dog lethargic and fever.
They are mostly one of the disease carrier.

You can find good info's here:

Hope this helps you, dear.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Re: Ticks!
my dog got ticks few months ago. it's so hard to kill them. not even with frontline spray. then i realize the spray is useless.

the vet suggest me the collar. im using the collar with the brand "kiltix" very useful. after 2 days all the ticks are gone. :) she's still wearing it now.
