Recently my dog has been getting ticks and they started off as just a few here and there but they seem to be getting worse. Last night I found myself spraying him with a flea and tick spray and removing them from his ears where they seem to be hideing most. This was very disgusting!
I'm looking for a proven product (including brand) that has been found to be very effective. When I was at the vet a few weeks ago the they mentioned that flea and tick collars aren't the the best treatment due to a few reasons, one being skin irritation due to the medicine on the collar and I them not really being totally effective. The vetinarian metioned some product to spray around his dog house that would get rid of them, but due to the fact that my dog is not in an enclosed area, but rather a large area of open land I dont know how effective that will work.
Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions!
