We also use the frontline plus. Many say that it stops working...my theory is people stop using it appropriately.... Since we have used it year round,we have not found one tick t. And only one who traveled on one of our dogs. It is a monthly product and should be used monthly. I know a lot of people try to lower the toxic load on their dogs and in general I believe in this, but ticks harbor such insidious diseases that are very hard to both recognize and get rid of for both dogs and us...that I find dosing them every month a necessary evil. And my vet who is in general very holistic feels that frontline is the safest.
The other thing that is important is to follow the not to use 48 hours before or after a bath (or a soaking rain ) instruction. It needs the oils in the skin to travel through the body which is the reason not to use right after a bath.
Anyway, What are you doing to get rid of the ticks in your house? Baby ticks would so freak me out. I was just recently diagnosed with Lyme disease. Tick borne diseases should not be taken lightly. Sorry for the tone of is post...this is something I am passionate about.
