    I was told by one pet shop to get the monthly injections as they are the same product and cost 280 baht a time, our dog does not like injections so i would like to get it in tablet form apart from the extra expense and time

    Any vet shop will have tick/mange/flea medicine.

    There is an excellent vet just about opposite the exit from the road after the exit from Prince of Songkla Uni into Kathu at the lights, it's called Kathu Animal Clinic or something like that.

    The guy keeps computer and paper records of the animals he treats, speaks pretty good English and is very careful.

    Our two dogs are OK with injections but the guy likes to alternate monthly between injections, Frontline and pills to ensure the dogs don't get too much as it can have a bad effect on their nervous system.

    I have his number but I'm not sure if it is OK to post it on the open forum, PM if you want it.

    We have tried frontline and it does not work at all,with Injections and collars the dog still gets ticks but not so many
    Currently our dog and our next door neighbors dog are being treated for tick fever
    Another neighbor had 2 dogs die from tick fever because she did not have a blood test done to confirm the dogs had it
    I want to try En Dex 4000 from a local supplier if possible,i ordered a item and paid for it on the Internet before and never received it

    Try a tick collar called Preventic made by Virbac. They work a charm. Active ingredient is amitraz.

    The cost is around 250B each for a collar lasting four months. Though it is more expensive, it beats the inconvenience of taking the dogs in for injections every month. I feel it is better health wise for them, too.

    Preventic collars are the only thing I have found works 100% for ticks. They don't even attach.

    Madre de cacao leaves

    I asked veterinary in Phils for injection or sumfing, but they said most medicine attacks liver, then they suggested why not bath him on madre de cacao leaves.

    I do that every few weeks and works wonder!

    Those trees are all over here, i guess same in Thailand.

    Get a few branches with leaves, boil the leaves about 10 minutes in a big pot, get a big bucket ( 2 gallon), mix with cold water, rub the dog with the wet leaves, smells funny, the dog hates it. Pour all the water over the dog.

    Let the dog loose, mine rolls over the floor.

    Once dry his hair is very nice and it keeps most of the ticks away for a couple of weeks.

    It cures wound too.

    What Are the Chemical Compositions of a Madre De Cacao Plant?

    Answer

    Chemical studies of the Madre de Cacao plant show interesting chemical compositions. Formosin (an isoflavan, reportedly with anti-tumor capacity) was found, along with formononetin, gliricidin-6a-gliricidol-9a, medicarpin (pterocarpan), 7,4'-dihydroxy-3'-methoxyisoflavin, 2'O-methylsepiol, tannin, and a trihydroxyflavone.
    Monday,Tuesday, then it goes WTF !

    I don't think you'll ever eliminate them entirely as it's in the nature of things. If the dog has Invermectin in its system the tick will die and fall off quite quickly.

    One of ours got a tick-borne parasite illness and it was pretty easy to see that something was wrong with her, she was pacing around and around all the time instead of just lounging about as she normally does.

    The vet took a blood sample but started her on meds immediately as he was pretty sure he knew what it was and said even if he was wrong the meds wouldn't do her any harm. When the blood test came back it was confirmed and she was fine again within a week.

    Just any flea collar won't work. It must be an amitraz collar for ticks. This is what we use in the rural Southern US where deer ticks are a huge problem.

    This product is made here in Thailand. My local vet had never heard of it before but ordered some after I requested. Now he keeps it in stock. Says up to four months, though I have found goes to five.

    Collars can be hazard for kids

    Some collars are a hazard for humans and dogs, Switzerland banned a few lately...

    Just fined brushed the dog this morning, there were a few ticks that i drop in Javel water.

    Then MADRE DE CACAO shower, he will be good for 2 to 3 weeks again. After the shower, removed a few as they show up better and stick less...

    Brushing your dog is something he might appreciate.

    What do all these different injections, pills and collars actually do? Do they just annoy the ticks so they stay off the dogs or do they actually kill the ticks?

    They are to kill the ticks and fleas either thru contact or when they suck blood, do not have a flea problem but the ticks seem to have become used to most things sold here and it does not kill them, the vet said our dog has tick fever which is a blood disease and supplied 4 types of medication which she has to take for a month
    we want her sterilized but it cannot be done until she is better
