    Ticks on dogs

    I believe Stronghold kills the tick. Then it drops off.Still worth taking it off if you see it

    I use frontline on my dogs, but in areas where there is a lot of ticks it could be worth trying advantix. As the frontline I got has no effect on the ticks in the forestry the ticks are not just bad on the dogs this year, i've never seen them so bad!!

    I use advantix, not cheap but kills any ticks that do attach, then use O'tom to remove

    Stronghold doesn't kill ticks! Great for fleas, ear mites, mange, heartworm but not ticks!

    A Scalibor collar is best value protection against ticks (one lasts 6 months).

    +1 on Frontline and a Trix Tick Lasso (yes, I know it sounds soppy but it does work really well).
