Tick repellent spray for dogs? Answered
My dog and I go out geocaching often and it brings us to many locations deep in the woods. Naturally, both her and I pick up dozens of ticks along the way.
The dog takes a monthly dose of Frontline and it works. The ticks bite her and die. No problems with the medication. I spray myself with bug spray and there are few issues of ticks getting on me when we're out.
The problem is, when we go home she will have ticks on her that I missed and they will crawl off of her and onto me or my wife. I'll find myself sitting on the couch watching TV or driving to the store and I'll get bit by a tick. My thinking is that if I can repel ticks from the dog, we will bring less home.
Is there a temporary spray that will repel ticks from my dog for 3 or 4 hours while we're out hiking and is compatible with her Frontline medication?
