    TICKS!!

    What do you use?
    What works?
    What doesn't?

    Currently using some little white pills called endex 4000 or some such,
    It's basically a massive overdose of heartworm med.
    Sort of works on one dog, does fuck all on the other.

    I'm the middle of a plague of the bastards of near biblical scale..

    I've always used Frontline.

    As long as you use it every month and don't shower the dogs 4 days either side of the treatment it works fine.

    I think it takes a couple of treatments to really take effect though, from memory.

    Got to the local farm store and buy some 5% Fipronil. Mix it up with water at the recommended dilution and spray it on the grass where your dog goes when outside. It is the active ingredient in Frontline but our dogs always get sick for one-two weeks with Frontline so we stopped using it. 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.
    Press On Regardless

    Bayticol will kill the ticks on the dogs. Use as a dip.

    Amitraz from the vet's office works well when sprayed around the area the ticks are hiding in.


    All the insecticides are very poison but no natural alternatives work for a plague of fleas.



    The local vet also suggested mopping the inside of my house with the Bayticol, which I did.

    They are medium sized Rotties and I give them 2 tabs a month as per the instructions. It worked initially.
    I suspect that the rural supply is open to fake meds as the recent tabs are not the same as the original ones (size/appearance)

    Available from vets etc. Pour between shoulder blades so dogs can't lick it. Apply every month.

    Get them waxed. It costs a bit more but gives a nice smooth finish and you don't have to do it so often!

    After trying most things here nothing seems to work for more than a couple of days. Max our German shepherd and Layla our border terrier were ill with e-canis, Max suffered massive weight loss and has never fully recovered. Been using Bayticol for a month now and its seems very effective. Plus put some in a spray bottle and spray there bedding and anywhere the ticks might be hiding. We have 9 dogs and it is the most cost effective and thorough method we have found.

    Go up to post #3 and give that a shot. Our dog started having ticks so I resprayed the lawn and two days later we are tick free again. Nothing has worked as well as the Fibronil spraying. You have to get them at the source.

    If you live on a large area of land and have the space to keep them, invest in half a dozen guinea fowl and a small shed turned into a coop for them to live in. No more ticks and everybody is happy.

    i had the same problem, German shepherd, looked dead massive weight loss, would not eat, local vet comes to inject whatever no improvment, another vet comes by, nothing happens, i already had given up and actually had a grave dug for my bitch, when the missus mentioned the 'internet' so i searched the net and i found something called 'ivermectin' in pill form, once a month still did not help much, then same drug but I.V. about 1cc /10kg.
    i learned to inject my own dog, 5cc of Ivermec once a month,
    10ml vial costs me 50 baht in the local vet supply store
    my bitch looks good and feels good too, and she still eats garlic, which apparently is toxic for dogs,
    do it yourself mate, leave the local vet out, bunch of wankers
    try it you will see a difference in a week or so
    all the best
    Sorry about me horrible speling

    Hi, in the chemicals shop where I buy copper sulphate and chorine for my swimming pool I asked for something against ticks. They get me a calcium something (bicarbonate?), a very fine white powder (quite cheap) I dissolved in a garden can, watering the lawn around the house. And it helped, not sure whether just by this or just a low season of the ticks...

    I still go for this. Also buy an insect killer spray and spray into all the nooks and crannies in your house. Especially spray around where the dogs sleep.

    Yeah Tick and yung season is here. Its been raining 5 straight days in our area. On and off but very good downpours. Ground saturated. With that comes the bugs and Tokay's barking at each.

    I will track down the link to what we use on our dogs. works really well. As for the yard, I keep it pretty manicured so the dogs do not run through the "Brush" so to speak and do not pick them up.

    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.

    We use Bravecto. Can be purchased on Lazada. Works very good on both our dogs
