Re: Tick Diseases and Dogs?

We use the Scalibor collar now in Spain. We still get an occasional tick, but they usually die shortly after biting and before the tick is supposed to pass a virus to its host (I hope!). Seems to work pretty well so far...

Sounds like the Scalibor collar. I've used these very effectively on both dogs for several years, although I put this year's on my giant schnauzer on Friday and I think the active ingredients must be stronger in this batch, going by his behaviour. It takes a few days for the excess powder to wear off, but they are effective for 4-6 months which covers the summer season perfectly well

Sounds like you're allergic?
Lol, I would say so.

Actually, what happened is that I spilled the bottle on my foot while I was rubbing some on my toe. My hands were fine, but I guess half a bottle spilling on my foot was too much

So, yeah, now I just buy pre-made tea tree oil creams and stuff

It's really good for insect bites ! Infact, I've bought tea tree oil chapstick (for lips) and use that to dab on mosquito bites.

It's also good for skin blemishes.

I did consider whether he was also depressed from trip. He was with me in UK and has gone from having people giving him attention all day and meeting lots of other dogs and being spoilt, to his normal routine of daycare with the other dogs and dog sitter until I get home.

Yesterday he slept all day mostly, and was not too interested in his food. Though he certainly perked up with full energy when friend popped over with her Schanuzer, which was female and Louix was "very" excited by that. He did eventually eat one meal for the day.

I'll be sure to check him again tonight, and expect there will be a tick.

I havent used any treatment for him yet, though a friend did recomment the collar, looks like a rubber collar that has medicine in it I guess?
Ticks were a fairly regular events with my dogs but since we started putting a few drops of Schwarzkümmelöl in their food they did not get ticks any more.

How was the UK visit? UK seems to have gone very anti dog with pub & restaurant bans everywhere. It is ascribed to EU regulations but there no issues with taking dogs into restaurants in France & Germany
