A few weeks ago we found a tick on our 10mo old Daisy. We had our yard sprayed, check our other Hav, Pixie and golden retreiver , Katie. They were fine. They are in our house 90 % of the time. When they are out on the front lawn they are on a leash and on grass only. I have a small 30ft x 30ft. garden which is fenced in. That is the only place in the back they go. I don't take them to parks or are they around other dogs. Yesterday I was grooming them and applied this months flea tick mosquito drops (Banfield's own). That evening my husband found a two ticks on Daisy. One big and the other small. It was late and I did a real quick check on the others. Well today I took a good look and found about 5 on Pixie and 4 on Daisy. Help! I threw away their doggy beds(which I found a couple ticks in the folds) day cushions down stairs, sprayed my bedroom floor, have checked all corners and walls where the ceiling meets and vacuumed upstairs and down. I thru away the vacuum bags. I called Banfield pet and they said I can't wash the girls till after tomorrow. Daisy has long cottony hair and has never been cut. I am thinking of having her taken down till this tick thing is gone. Pixie has 2 inch curly hair and a shaved tummy. ANY other suggestions?
