    I think its because the deer are coverd in the ticks. You always seem to get a huge number of ticks where you get deer passing through.

    Just back from the Highlands and the tics are in abundance.
    I don't seem to be that attractive to them but on one evening three of my fishing mates had a very large number on them with one having 10 on one lower arm and hand. Some were very small and very difficult to spot at first sight. Take care out there.

    As I assume some of you know, permethrin-based repellents, applied to clothing, are very effective tick repellents. Way back in grad school I was a "guinea pig" for the U.S. Dept. of Ag, testing those repellents on lands incredibly infested with ticks...and deer. I can attest to their effectiveness.

    There is at least one vaccine available aimed at preventing canine Lyme Disease. I've been happy with Advantix II for my setters for some years. We sure do live in tick country.

    On a bummer of a note, just before we were to head to Canada for a couple weeks back in April, my young (2+ years) was diagnosed with heartworms (we also live in mosquito country, both here (VT) and in Canada. I must have screwed up with his ivermectin preventative, is all I can think. The protocol for curing that is a *****. It goes on for months, 2.5 of which he is relegated to his kennel box. Thank heavens for the sedative Trazadone, or he'd never survive being cooped up! We still have all of August to go (he is at the vet right now getting the second series of adulticide shots and will be there til tomorrow. He just looks at me from his box with a "what the hell did I do to deserve this" look. Not fun for anyone.

    Default Bravecto

    Now available as a spot on for Dogs and Cats.
    12 weeks protection for ticks and fleas.
    why would you waste your time on 4 week treatments as you will probably forget to repeat the treatment in time,3 months protection works for my dogs perfectly.
