I feel you on the ticks. I live in a rural area in Georgia and out property is woods, creek and pond. Plus, the ticks stay active for most of the year because we don't have much cold weather. I didn't have much success with Frontline Plus, so my vet gave us prescription tick collars. They worked really well, but I hated them. Now our vet, in the worse months, has us use the Frontline + every 3 weeks instead of every 4 and that seems to do the trick. But, as everyone else has said, please get advice from your vet. And I don't want to be gross, but be sure to check the groin area too. The ticks love that nice warm area. Good luck! Suzanne

I have learned that a natural remedy that can be used is Tea Tree Oil; a few drops with water in a spray bottle works as a repellant. You can mist your dogs legs etc before going for that long hike or out.
I don't know where you live or what type of coat your dog has, but shaving helps you find them easier too, if your dog has lots of fur or a thick coat. .
Can anyone recommend a tick treatment that works quickly? I used Frontline, but my Dog is literally covered with ticks. I've removed over a dozen in the last 3 days. I've had to put our morning hikes on hold.
