Forum Rules
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.

Eesh! That sounds awful! I feel like I should keep Dizzy in a bubble until the advantix gets here!

[quote="wpskier222"]Yikes! Dizzy has been scratching a lot, and I did as thorough a check as I could last night, with a wiggling puppy. Also gave him a bath and it was easier to look when he was wet. I didn't see anything, but I ordered advantix today. quote]

Same with Meeka, no fleas, and no ticks but she still scrathes herself. I took her to the vet but nada, no test were performed. They believe since I live in a dusty area (corner house in busy street) that she is having an allergic reaction to too much dust and therefore scratching.

Interesting. I'll see if the chicken elimination helps... I didn't think of dust, there is a ton of dust where we live. I sort of gave up trying to deal with it. Maybe I should start trying again lol.

I don't know if since it's from the start of the season or not, but the one's I've been finding are absolutely tiny. Smaller than a head of a pin. You can feel them on you but they're difficult to see. Just look like little freckles.

Though I'm having the same issue as you Keri and Jennifer, I don't know where they're coming from because they seem to be multiplying days and days after being somewhere we're exposed to ticks. All I can think is that they were on the dogs and somehow got off without attaching and now are roaming around.. Neutral

It's peak tick season right now with the nymphs out, i haven't seen any of them but they're practically impossible to find. There haven't been any on the girls but we haven't gone anywhere to get any. When i went to Toledo to bowl in the woman's state tournament i got 3 big ones in my hair after playing in the woods. Then when i went to the barn and the horses were out in the big pasture i found one on my leg afterwards. I hate bugs. I've had the creepy crawlies since. pale

It was mentioned that the oils are toxic for cats, how toxic are we talking? We have an indoor outdoor cat well kitten really, would i end up killing him if i used the oils on the dogs collars and harnesses? I wouldnt be putting anything on the cats stuff but i would like to use the oils on the dogs since we have them around a three year all the time and i never had luck with the topical stuff actually drying.

So long as the cats aren't coming in contact with the oils or the collars/harnesses with the oils they should be fine. I've never had a problem with using the oils on my dogs in the same house as cats.

Ok thanks! Wouldnt want to harm the kitten, but he usually avoids the dogs cause their too rough with him so I'll have to look for a store that carries the oils this weekend. Thanks again!

I have not tried this product personally but have read rave reviews about it, safe to use on humans as well...along the same lines as what others were saying, uses essential oils...idk how much money oils are buying them separately as I have never done so...
