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.

Hi, I'm looking for some advice about tick repellant. I have a 13 yr old male husky named Saber. I have been thinking about taking him to a local forest preserve and walking him there for a change of pace (it gets a little boring walking around the same neighborhood). My only concern is he has an extremely low white blood cell count and I'm afraid he'll pick up a tick.
He has not been on any tick repellant for years. I have read on here that some people use rose geranium oil and I was wondering if that would be enough to protect him with his low white blood count? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Yes, the rose geranium SHOULD be enough. Does he wear a harness when you take him hiking? If so, I would put some oil on both his collar and harness for added protection. There is no 100% guarantee but I've yet to see a single tick on any of my dogs since I've been using Rose Geranium oil for the past 2 years, prior to using the oil they got ticks more than I care to remember.

Yes, he will be wearing a harness. Thank you for your reply!
