oh, wilf. i love your morning hair dos. :)
i don't know you surroundings, but i'm assuming you have a road by your house? even if it's just a dirt road, walking wilf on the road would probably work. ticks aren't near as likely to be there.

I can understand your worry about ticks. The only other solution I saw once (on TV) was someone whoc shaved their dogs each summer for the heat and also to make ticks more easily visable. This is rather a drastic measure, and of course, as you say above, there is still the chance of the tick biting and moving off so chemicals are still needed.

Sending Woofs to Wilf.

Hmmm. I can only suggest staying out from under trees...the little buggers seem to delight in parachuting down upon unsuspecting heads, and out of untrimmed grasses for a bit. I have to be walked in the middle of the road right now, even the sidewalks are treacherous as sandspurs are blowing in the winds. SHE plucked 4 out from under my leggie pits yesterday after a walky in the middle of the road. Not fatal, but hurts like the dickens. After every walky I get fine tooth combed and I hates it!

Her friend the long haired hippy chick recommends a couple of drops of rose geranium oil on dog collars. We have no idea what that is or what it does, but thought we'd pass it on. Check with yer vettie frist. I think her friend smokes too much happy weed sometimes.

sniffies,

Bonnie

Hi Angus!

I found this all-natural solution for you as well:

After living in Italy and France, I imagine Wilf has a refined taste for garlic!

Good luck!

2010-05-13T19:39:17.921+02:00

Well, Mr. Angus, you are not alone. My mom is prolly one of the Most Paranoid peoples in the whole wide world so we know where you're coming from! You just do what you think is best and that's all you can do.

I think Wilf is very much handsome and he looks very rakish in that last picture with his furs all over the place. Give him some nose kisses from me!

Oh, and have a very much safe trip!

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

Hi everybody. Thanks so much for your comments and...

2010-05-13T17:59:12.131+02:00

Hi everybody. Thanks so much for your comments and advice. Unfortunately there is something in Advantix that Wilf is allergic to. He starts to develop uncontrollable spasms. By contrast Frontline doesn't have this effect on him. Take the point about it being a pesticide but the alternative is not using anything at all - as we live in deep, deep country with herds of deer wandering through the fields some form of treatment is a must. Seems to me that once every 3 weeks is probably the best balance.

2010-05-13T17:21:00.331+02:00

you can only do the best you can do for Wilf. it sounds like you are taking all precuations. isn't there a medicine that repels the ticks so that they won't get on the dog in the first place?

we had a collar strangulation accident 6 years ago with a 3 month old puppy. you would not believe how paranoid i am about anything that i put on my dogs' necks. i think that when something bad happens you become very sensitive about it.

take care.

2010-05-13T15:38:41.486+02:00

Ticks are nasty...we live in an area with a lot of Lyme disease, but it certainly doesn't sound as bad as where you live.

Hope Wilf has fun christening tires at the airport!



Have a safe and fun trip!

2010-05-13T15:01:46.888+02:00

Woooos! I hope woo have a safe trip, and give Wilf extra buckets of water to keep up the tire christening.... Mum gets worried because I am allergic to frontline and others, luckily the ticks can't find my skin due to the fur....
Be safe, but be happy!

Lots of love to Wilf! I have also heard that advantix is better. Yes it is a pesticide but we just experienced the alternative with precious Digby so I would absolutly do what you are doing. Pee on everything goofy boy!!!!!

2010-05-13T14:41:25.032+02:00

Sending many hugs and a little kiss to Wilf. Getting through monumental loss is not an easy road - no matter how many tires you may water during the day☺

I sometimes wonder if a little brother may help pull him out of his gloomy mood...just a thought.

2010-05-13T14:18:29.052+02:00

I hope you have a safe trip! It sounds like Wilf is managing well enough and bouncing back a bit. I still laugh at his windblown hairdo!

2010-05-13T13:38:55.925+02:00

My vet recommends Advantix, as it is more powerful and kills more kinds of ticks. It is poisonous to cats, so we're waiting until we get to Hilton Head next week before using it. Happy to buy some to send your way if you can't Find it in France. Bayer (the manufacturer) says that Advantix Repels and kills 98.5% of all ticks, including brown dog ticks, before they can attach. The ticks die within three hours of contact. Advantix is 100% effective in preventing Lyme disease as well, even in studies conducted by Frontline. Let me know if you'd like me to send you some K-9 Advantix.

Oh, trip to the airport - lots of tires in that place -
this would be a GOOD adventure.

Have wonderful trip and just think how wonderful is will be to be home.

2010-05-13T13:32:24.881+02:00

I would be nervous applying Frontline every two weeks since it is a poison and your pet could die of an overdose. I think once a month would be the safest, perhaps only occasionally every three weeks. I have a little dog (Teddy), so am very careful with the timing of these applications.



First of all, I think it's wonderful that you ...

2010-05-13T12:44:41.464+02:00

First of all, I think it's wonderful that you added that the proceeds will go to the restoration of the church clock!! (I hope I translated that right, it's early here!)

Second, I know how hard it is to find the balance in using Frontline and other preventatives. I have to admit that even though we live in the country I never put Frontline on my senior dogs and use it very sparingly on the others because it is a pesticide--But having gone through what you have, I totally understand and respect your choices to change your regiment and I wonder if I would now make make different choices if I were in your shoes...

Have a safe trip!!



Have a great trip and stay dry.
