Ticks are a daily problem around here. I use Frontline, and although it kills them (within 12 hours they say), it does not repel them. My breeder and vet both do not recommend Advantix for small dogs, so I have stayed away from that. Plus, you can't have it near cats and I have 2. The vet did recommend a tick collar for Brady, but it too said not to have near cats so I did not use it. I think it was called Preventic. It is used to repel ticks. Fortunately, Brady is easy to spot them on. They usually go right for his head and neck areas. There was one day a few weeks ago when we went walking and I pulled 8 off of him as soon as we got home. Um, yuck!!! My yard is fine, but walks are a problem. He loves to jump in pacasandra, weeds, leaves, long grass and even the stream.
