Ticks... What do you do for your younger pups?

Postby Byron.Nield » Wed Aug 19, 2015 8:07 pm

So, I took my 10 week old pup out to roam the vast prairies of Kansas today and within 30 minutes I pulled 6 ticks off of him with only one actually attached. I applied some frontline-esque topical (that is made for pups apparently) to him two weeks ago, and so I am not worried at this point of having missed one but it got me curious what everyone else does for they're younger dogs. Feel free to post any opinions that you have!

If I was in a more tick infected area than I am I would be using Seresto Flea & Tick collar made by Bayer . For the last 3 years the dogs have worn a 1/3 of the purple cattle tags on their collars and I haven't seen a tick. My hunting boots also have one clipped to them- The start of the season I make a spray from Permethrin concentrate and spray my hunting clothes.
