I use Frontline Plus and have never had a problem with it. I find it very effective. I live in an area where ticks are a real problem.

For the mosquitos - Avon makes a product called "Skin So Soft". It's been a known mosquito repellant used by people for years. It's also safe for your dog. Dilute a small amount of the lotion in a spray bottle (a clean new one from the Dollar store will work well) with warm water. Shake it up to mix it. You can spray it on your dog and it should repel all kinds of nasties

Good Luck - and Welcome to PT

Yep... I use and recommend Frontline Plus too. We don't have mosquitos here so I wouldn't know on that. I totally trust Deja's advice though.

Deja, I'm glad you posted about Skin-So-Soft. I've used that myself to repel mosquitos and wondered if it was safe for dogs.

It was new news to me recently I was reading an article in - hrrm either Dog Fancy or the AKC magazine... can't remember which - but it gave that suggestion and it makes sense! I hope it works - I am planning on trying it on my 2 big guys...

We have so many mosquitos around here... eeew!!!
