When can we say goodbye to these little buggers? Our vet said we could skip November's Frontline (it hasn't worked very well the last 2 months anyhow!!). My dog had a tick on her yesterday--I found it and pulled it off (and I was pretty proud of myself).

Yes, I know, it's not a big deal but when you never did these things, it is!

We've had cold weather here on and off, but I guess until it stays cold and ground freezes we'll have ticks.

If anyone knows of anything better than Frontline, chime in. I am not impressed.

If they are in your home, you may have to treat the house and his bedding as well. This year seems to have been worse than others. I have found a few on the dogs....whereas in the past few yrs haven't seen a one. We are in Tx. so the weather, historically, never really gets cold enough to kill them all off.
I also use Advantix....it covers fleas, ticks and mosquitos....I've been pretty pleased with it. I just got an e-mail if you purchase 3 mos worth, you can get a free tube at your vet with a coupon they have on the internet.

We are in Texas too and I second using Advantix. We switched from Frontline a few years ago and it seems to work better. You will still see ticks occationally on the dogs but they don't seem to attached.
