    My wife does her random checks and if she finds one just uses the Alcohol on the Qtip trick to back them out then kills them.
    It's still dry here but it has been the worst year for ticks I have known, for at least the last couple of months. I think one reason is that the dogs have missed their injections (against ticks) since the vet has stopped doing house visits with this lock down.

    I just spent a couple of hours plucking off ticks from the dogs, especially between their toes; later I'll give them a shower each with tick and flea shampoo. All apart from one that is, Max goes mental if you touch his feet. Then followed by a good dose of tick and flea powder.

    After a few days I now the ticks will be back. I'm going to give that Bravecto a try.

    The nice thing about the Bravecto, its once every 3 months type deal. Its a big chewy square and the dogs chow them down and done.

    My wife just gave both the dogs their rabies injections for the year. Vet here gives her all the supplies she mixes it up and injects them and the dogs never even flinch.

    ^ Same here... the vet prepares all the syringes and I do all the injections myself at home. Three dogs no problem at all, one dog goes mental.

    All these "candies" against ticks are insecticide that you dog eat.
    Thousands dogs around the world are dying yearly around the world because of BRAVECTO and NEXGUARD, just check google.
    At least if giving this poison it should be cheap as Ivecmectin, but it's hard to find it seems.

    Can you tell me more about this detick ? how do you use it ?
    what else can we put around where dogs sleep ?
    thanks again.

    can you use it inside home ?
    is it this ?

Kennels with runs use Fipronil applied on the grass so it is a common technique for tick control. A side benefit is that you won't have as many ants either. Be careful with the stuff as it is a poison. Another reason to leave it on the ground and not in your dog. It lasts about 3-4 months.

    This seems natural to spread around the house ?

    Pyrethrin - Wikipedia

    Fipronil - Wikipedia

    It seems to vary from country to country. We had a couple of Kelpies when in the NT. Impossible to keep them fenced so they ran wild, swam with freshwater crocs chased donkeys, and occasionally tried to chew up a pupil or 2. Which, incidentally was their down fall. We used Front line regularly and we never had a problem witch fleas or ticks. All good. Lovely dogs.

    Since moving to Chiang Rai we've tried all kinds of things including Frontline, which was bloody expensive for 5 dogs. Finally the son of the local vet was being friendly and suggested a generic Thai "kill all" tablet which cost a 1/4 of Frontline and we've not looked back. I don't think his Dad was too happy but that's life. We've now got 2 Bankeos and they'e as fit as can be. I'm reasonably convinced that the wife is right and we'll stick with local dogs from now on.

    I'll try and get the name of the stuff we use.

    This might be what I have mentioned above, the white fine powder, just bought it again. The chemical shop calls it "calcium carbonate", 150 Baht a kilo, I will spread it up again around the house dissolved in water.

    Perhaps, it really works, last few months my 3 dogs haven't had many ticks as during the time frame before I did it, there were thousands a day.

    The areas where your dogs can run and wander will have a huge impact on how many ticks they may encounter. Of course how you keep your property shrubs etc will also play a role. Our dogs do not leave our yard except for an occasional walk to the river. For me I know I could not tie up my time dusting my property to keep ticks under control.

    Originally we tried various powders and voodoo concoctions and none worked. Our local vet recommended the one we use now and all works good.

    As for these medicines killing dogs. I guess it's just like the plethora of meds humans take. Some might have adverse reactions to them. There will always be statistics.

    I checked again and Fipronil seems to be the best and less dangerous for cats and dogs.
    25 thb a sachet on lazada.
    Anybody else is using it ?

    I use 'Detick'. It contains Fipronil, the same as Frontline but much cheaper.


    Detick dripped externally on the skin of your pet behind the nape of the neck. The active ingredient fipronil rapidly dissolves into the skin's natural oils your pet and feathers, spread over the entire surface of the body within 24 hours and concentrated in the oil glands of the skin to form a cistern/reservoir.

    We had a lot of problems with ticks on the dogs back in March. The dogs were washed with a regular anti flea shampoo and dusted with an anti flea powder once daily for 3 days. They were brushed twice a day and any fleas were picked out. We then used an anti flea liquid you apply to the back of the neck. I can't recall which one but there are several products on the market. I bought it over from Germany because it's not easy to get anything up here in the sticks...
    The lapdog didn't get the final treatment. She had a hair cut instead...and again after three weeks.

    Dogs haven't had many fleas since. They go off and catch them from time to time but powder has been sufficient to remove them.
    A lot of hard work in the beginning but worth it.

    first for the yard and house.make up a spray,BAYTICOL /WATER and spray around where the dogs lay and in the house all around skirting boards,under the bed and furniture,outside use a pest control service to spray the garden,but dont let them out for an hour or two.as for prevention of ticks,BE CAREFULL what you buy most are pesticides,what kills outside also kills inside,you must follow up with a blood support and a liver support as protection for the platelets aswell,most vets will prescribe prednisolone and doxy although they make the dog depressed,there is no magic bullet.steroids and antibiotcs should not be given together. be carefull what you use.check ears,in between toes and around the neck mostly.
