My dogs are on nextgard which only kills ticks once they have bitten and doesn’t repell.
I came back from a ride with my dog and must have pulled off well over 50 ticks and I think that is an underestimation. I’m really tired of it and my dogs have gotten anaplasmosis before.
The problem is I have cats who lay all over the small dog and even groom her so that means all the topical treatmens are a no go.
I’ve tried the sorresto collar but she managed to get it off somehow and chew it up twice. Anyway I sleep with her and don’t like the feel of those things.
So I’m wondering if there is even a mild type of repellent I could wipe on her when going for a walk and then wash off when we got home?
Does anybody know of anything like that? It would have to be easily washed off or maybe something that is cat safe even if that’s means it’s less effective. I’d still keep them on the nextgard but just use this to hopefully avoid having to pick off hundreds of ticks or find the dead ones on my bed.
