I hate ticks. Texas is second only to Washington, DC in blood sucker infestation. It started for me about 4 weeks ago. My boys (Donner and Blitzen)
are outside dogs who get to come indoors only when I'm home. I bring them in for about an hour or two a day just to give them a good once over, or a
bath, whichever is warranted.
I find them daily, spraying my yard helps but does not solve the problem. Chemicals suck, I have searched high and low for a natural alternative to
treat the environment versus treating the dogs. I had a vaccine injured dog (Dancer) and it was a sad, sad experience. She wasted away just like she
had parvo after the vaccine. Chicken broth and activated charcoal counteracted the symptoms somewhat, but not before the damage was done.
Good thread OP. Reminders are important to keep us all aware of parasites that feed off our loved ones.
