|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey guys i recently bought zodiac spot on for tundra as it was on sale and we are having a bad year for ticks up here in canada. Before using it i googled info and havent seen anything newer than 2010 or so but read alot of horror stories about simular types of products. I was wondering what ypu guys reccomended. Should i use a different brand or use none at all? Please share your experiances and if u have any questions about tundra or our location feel free. He is male year and a half and weighing in at 63 pounds

My vet recommended NexGard, so that's what I use. It's a beef-flavored chewable tablet. It's easy to administer and haven't had any flea/tick issues or adverse reactions with Echo yet.
I think it's prudent to protect your dog from fleas and ticks, especially as you said this year in Canada it's pretty bad with the weather. Also, I don't know about you, but my husky's coat is sooo thick that I really can't check for ticks. Other than brushing, and bathing him regularly, it gives me a piece of mind that there is at least a line of defence for my furry friend.

I use Nexgard as well, works 100% better than the drops I was using. Haven't seen a flea since and no ticks either.

I use "Seresto 8 Month Flea & Tick Collar for Large Dogs & Puppies" I have had 0 problems with fleas. This one time I was so worried and embarrassed about rejecting my in-laws offer to bring them over for a doggy playtime weekend thing, because well my husband and I are certain their dogs have fleas. But mine never got the fleas and I am so soooo happy about that and so I am sticking to this product
. Plus our vet was happy we had gotten them on it from day 1 and I don't mind the grey simple collar .
