I made the mistake of looking for flea and tick treatment on the internet. There were so many options; I had no idea which option will be best for my dogs. Anyway, long story short I finally found perfect solution for my dog’s flea problem. Today I am going to share that “solution” with my readers.

Reasons why ticks attack dog

Most of the time your dog will get flea from other dogs he hangs out with, he can also get ticks or fleas from Raccoons that came to visit your house. However, you need to be serious about flea/ticks. A particular type of tick bite can cause deadly Lyme disease in dogs.

Some visible signs of tick infections

Red rashes, fever, loss of appetite, shivering are the common symptoms of tick infection.

Tips for tick and flea prevention

Dogs do not enjoy wearing clothes. But some ticks can kill your dog. If you know your area has poisonous fleas then make sure your dog wears a jumpsuit every time he goes out.

Products recommended for flea/tick prevention in dogs

There are sprays that you can use for flea/ticks on dogs. However, you need to make sure the products you are using on your dogs have no chemicals. I also use sprays on my dogs. But I only use natural sprays. These sprays are my solutions for flea and tick problem. I tried home based tick solution suggested by my friends. But sorry to tell those remedies do not work. A vet I consulted also said the same thing. The products I used on my dogs are suggested by a well-known vet.

Merial Frontline Plus Flea and Tick Control for 5-22 Pound Dogs and Puppies

This product is little costly and I admit that. But the problem is also serious, so I did not mind spending serious money for this. This product actually worked very well on my dogs. However, since I am honest here, I need to warn you something. This product has a strong smell, so you may need to wear a mask when you apply this ointment on your dog.

PetArmor 3 Count Plus for Dogs Flea and Tick Squeeze-On

A great product, but again very costly, this product gave me really good result. I applied the product on my dog, and then used a soft brush on his hair. It was good to see lots of ticks falling out of his body. My dog was restless before I used the product, his problem was getting worse, but he was back to normal after I used this product on him.

Adams Plus Flea & Tick Shampoo with Precor for Dogs and Cats

Okay, I will be honest here; I was not sure about this product as it is too cheap. But I read good reviews about this shampoo, so I decided to give this shampoo a try. I use this shampoo for my dogs on a regular basis now. I am not sure if this shampoo will work if your dog has serious flea problem. But this shampoo is great for regular care.

Dogs are animals; they are not toys, so get ready to face problems like these many times during his life span. But no worries, your dogs will pay you back with lots of love and affection.
