I found a tiny tick on the cat the other day. Reminder that ticks are active again, maybe helped by the mild winter. I got the Frontline out and did all three animals.

Gosh not even thinking about that Grumbling probably going to be bad for fleas this year too Thumbs down
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Could be, luvs. We've somehow been spared from flea problems so I stop Frontline over the winter. But ticks are a constant concern here- they don't seem too bothered by Frontline. Still, I had not thought at all about them "in February!"

Please not another bad tick year . Last year was the worst one ever around here , you were lucky to go a week without one. My vet gave me a newer product Vectra+ 3d which is supposed to kill them faster then Frontline. Also there is a generic for Frontline called Pet Armor they sell in Walmart.

Hey Bob, with our black dogs, its all but impossible to even find ticks unless they are bloated and disgusting Thumbs down
Maybe with fleas not being a problem here typically, I should ask for whats best "for ticks"

According to my vet Vectra 3D is the best for killing ticks the fastest.
