    Fipronil is like Bayticol but cheaper, more natural, and not dangerous, I will try it but it is reported everywhere.

    The 'pack' arrived yesterday and it only had one tablet in it! We've now got five dogs, so this was of limited use...

    I had to take the new dog to the vet today and she was injected against ticks as it seems she may have a tick borne blood parasite (she was covered in ticks when we found her). We've always previously had our other dogs injected every six months and we've never had a tick problem, until this year when the injections stopped due to the vet stopping home visits because of Covid 19.

    Next week he's starting the home visits again and only charges 200 Baht per call out so they'll get injected... a hell of a lot easier than trying to get four dogs to the vet across town.

    more than likely your vet is injecting ivermectin which is used for heartworm [caused by mosquitos] aswell.

    most what vets prescribe against parasite's on pedigree dogs will eventually damage their imune system,thai dogs seem to tolerate ticks for yrs.without any treatment whats so ever.i know of one who has never been treated now 12yrs.old,the 4 that the wife feed are covered in ticks,but you cant get near them.after 6yrs.one of them passed away this yr.[parasite desease].dont forget if you kill a female tick,drop them in thiinner to make sure you kill the eggs [around 40,000 per tick.its time consuming but that is the only way CHECK BY HAND.
    and what are the worlds biggest killers?mosquito's and ticks,never mind what you use,africa,oz tropical climates and farang loving owners are nothing but gravy trains just see staff at the vets when a farang walks in with his beloved.our last trip to one of the biggest vetinary hospitals in bkk.were no diferent,pay up and come back in 2weeks,he only made it to the 8th.day,yet we got no answers at all,only the bill.so check on everything that is given to you and what they say.that includes a lot of B.S.

    Poor dogs full of ticks but not being treated.
    Yes, they can live with ticks until they die, but how uncomfortable must be their life !

    its a never ending story,by most who don't care a fyck about animal welfare only the welfare of the wallet.its heartbreaking to see every day the amount of homeless dogs fighting for any scrap of food,i am lucky where I live,only 50 houses but not many dogs[no more than 10 but still ticks are every where.sorry buts its not a country to keep a loving pet only only heartbreak.i never thought I or the wife would ever have another after what we went through with our beloved and before its said MONEY was no object.just LOVE.the story behind the one we have now is gut wrenching the loving way.
    an injured dog was picked up in a car park and taken to an animal hospital by a good person,the dog survived but little did they know that she was with pup,after 2days she gave birth to just one,that was almost 9mnths ago,she has put a smile back on my face and the wife now has a daughter who sleeps with us in our bed and is safe and well looked after.can only say it was a gift from god sent to us to heal the heartbrake we suffered 2018.we are a lot wiser now but our love for her will make sure she gets a good life.

    The veterinary nurse came round today for our dogs' rabies and distemper boosters.

    The dogs also had a separate injection for ticks/fleas/heartworm, and this is what we've used for years with no obvious adverse effect... Dan is nearly 14 now and going strong.



    1ml / 1cc Ivomec (Ivermectin) injection for each dog... they are around 20kg give or take. The vet says this should be done every 2 months, especially at the moment when there are so many ticks about.

    I'm going to start doing these injections myself and should be able to get the Ivomec from the local animal feed place we use. I already do some of the jabs myself as one of the dogs always runs off when the vet turns up.

    The same drug is used for pigs and cattle...

    Was the nurse worth an injection?
