Hi everyone,
Last year I got a GSP and he is 10 months old. I have been taking him with me on my dove and quail trips and when I go out walking. I always shower him right after our trips and brush him to get the deer ticks off of him but sometimes I miss one or two. I was wondering if some you can chime in with some ways I can prevent deer ticks on my dog. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Simperica, chewables.

Just a warning, we have anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis. They are tick born like Lyme. Tia got it and it took months to get it out of her system.

Nice dog congratulations.
That is a very tough question.
It depends what is worst.
Flea and tick repellent or the ticks and fleas.
I use to use those tick repellent that you apply on the dogs and is good for a year and worked really well.
But it started making our dogs sick.
I lived in a rual area that had lots of fleas and ticks.
Then switched to stuff from the local nursery, trying to remember the name but it's been few years. Microscopic worms deadly on ticks and fleas, but very safe for humans and pets. Mix in water and spray over the yard. Never had a flea or tick problem again. Every couple years re-apply on the yard. How safe it is direct on pets, you would have to research that.
But Google it and check it out.
