    I live in South Florida and have two dogs that last season invested my house with fleas. With diligent treatments of the house and the Dogs I got it under control(the change of seasons helped too). But one thing that I cannot stop is the Tick infestation. My dogs come into my house at night and...

    Does anyone do Titer Tests for their cat/dogs instead of vaccinating? I just found out that my dog was NOT vaccinated against Lyme disease as i had thought she was (My other half took her in). And during our last camping trip of dog was bitten by a tick. Though Lyme is not to common here, I...

    Last year was a very difficult year, as some of you know. This year is a little bit better. Last year was full of events, Scott had a major heart attack, his mother passed away, then I was hit by a truck, Jack passed away and then I had Lyme disease and Bell's Palsy at the same time. As I...

    Ok I frontlined all the animals last week and I was wondering does the stuff spread to their faces? Coz I have been finding tics on their faces. tilly had 1 on her chin and poor poor Emil had one on his eyelid about a mm from his eye. His whole eye swelled up.

    has anyone ever used one of those things to pull tics out with? They are like a plastic stick with a hoop on the end that you hook round the tic. They are $20 here and dont want to get 1 if they are rubbish

    So I found a tick on my boyfriend's dog. It was attached to her and I took it off because nobody wanted to do it. I need some feedback on some flea and tick products because I'm not sure what to buy. I know they wont buy anything and I feel sorry for her. :( I'm not sure if she still has some...

    Last night we had both Emil and Indy on the bed and we was trying to clean up Indys eye a bit when I noticed a tic on his cheek. It was grey and shriveled up. Does this mean the tic stuff had killed it? Well we pulled it out and he has 2 little scars on his face now from those things. Well...

    I was stroking my neighbours cat yesterday when I felt something small on its upper neck, when I looked to see what it was it was a small burrowing thing that had removed a lot of hair around the area it was in. We pulled it out and there is a scab now. I checked him all over and found another...

    Lil'Samson (rottweiler puppy at 60.9 lbs) got a Lyme Disease Vaccine about 3 hours ago. His thigh has some pretty good swelling now and if you rub the area gently he "nibbles" at your hand to encourage you to stop touching it. He has also whined several times when getting up or down as well as...
