Fleas and ticks HELP!

Hi ,

My K9 is infected by fleas and ticks.
I have used Frontline that I understand kills the fleas/ticks when it set on the doggies body.

I remember Mr KhooBG was mentioning about a solution that we can bath our doggie in. Can't remember the name of the product already. Khoo I would appreciate if you could give me the name of the product.

Anyone else have any other suggestions?

Many doggie cheers,

Hi ChengSee,

Have you tried those ticks and flea collar? I am not sure how effective it is with that.. some of it can be effective up to 6 months, some 3 months..

Re: [kbs] Fleas and ticks HELP!

Hi KBS,

It's tough to get those flea & tick collar. So far, there's only one shop selling this. Well, not sure if it's proven. If works alright, perhaps to u buy them in US and bring it back Wink

Beside the collar type, there r those AC / battery power-sourced type of adaptor (emits radiowave than keeps fleas/ticks away) in the States..again, not sure about its effectiveness.

Hi Cheng See,

It is actually no problem for me to bring back one from US. I've been driving to a number of Pet's supermarkets and found quite a number of them here.. they are cost between usd 6 to usd 15 before tax.. If you want, you need to let me know by tomorrow, as I will be leaving US in two days time.

Re: [kbs] Fleas and ticks HELP!

I was typing away to reply this post and almost come to the end and Belle comes and Press the ESC key and here I am starting all over again.

Thank you KBS for the offer, but I guess I will stick to bath solution. I have 3 doggies here so if I need to get anti fleas colllar I will need 3 and 3 is rather expensive Unsure.

I guess she might have caught the fleas when I took Belle to practice outside before the show and from her it passes to Kiddo and CoCo.

Many doggie cheers,

Re: [TohCS] Fleas and ticks HELP!

Hi Cheng See...how come your dog has fleas? Did she go near any cats? I believe the solution that Khoo mentioned is the same one I used for my dog for his mange condition....no doubt it works wonders for the ticks as well coz I hv not had any problems with ticks because of the bath I gave but the wash is also very toxic and I wudn't recommend you to use it....some dogs will hv side effects frm the wash such as vomitting and sedation....my vet asked me to give a charcoal tablet to neutralise the toxic after each wash....so if your dog is just having ticks/fleas problem, the normal stuff like Frontline or tick collar shd do the trick.

Re: [TohCS] Fleas and ticks HELP!

I think tick collars will be very dangerous to ur furkids if you have more than one dogs.

They may accidently chew on each others collar and causes poisoning. I think it is better for an owner with one dog.

Re: [ginl] Fleas and ticks HELP!

TO use frontline effectively you need to ask vet for advice on how to apply correctly and how much amount that is safe enough to clear of the ticks/fleas.

I remember sometimes they allow u to apply more than usual but of course with a good judgement as well. So it all depends on types of the dog and what you apply.

Re: [TohCS] Fleas and ticks HELP!

Cheng See,

I have used this product by Bayer called Bactisol. Cost about RM18.00 (Recommended by the vet) Bath the doggie clean first. Follow the mixing instructions, it'll look something like dettol! Vet says its okay if the doggie should lick some of the solution.

Sponge the solution all over the doggie, and pat dry. Works very wellSmile

Frontline is a fine product but it only works when the tick or flea bites the skin. The solution approach works by killing on contact and it acts like a repellant as well. So logically, for complete protection, one would use frontline for longterm and the solution for immediate/short-term.

Hope this helps. Rdgs Arthur

I have also used Bacticol for my doggie and they work great. I also used to spray on area that may have tick. A word of caution. Always wear plastic hand glove when you apply these solutions on your doggie.

Re: [cdmoo] Fleas and ticks HELP!

O dear,

I never have problem in buying tick/flea collar... In Kuching, we can find it in supermarket, pet shop, and vet too.... And cost around RM20 to RM24++... Advice for them who have more than one dogs... is to cut one tick coller into half or 3 parts, then tie it with rubberband or thread on inside your dog collar, and make sure it touched your dog skin. This is my one dollar thought... hehehe...Tongue

It would means that if any of you is to go all the way to padang merbuk just to collect the clicker, you can save the trip today. (Sorry.), But I will bring it next Sunday once I have my luggage back.

Re: [arthur] Fleas and ticks HELP!

Hi Arthur,

Seattle was having an excellent weather before I left, sunny minus the humidity most of the day and nice temperature (20+degree C). Didn't goto Pike Market this time, but went few months ago on my last trip, interesting place, they even had malaysian food there.. And the fish stall was very interesting, singing while selling and seems like watching a show.

Most of the time whenever I am free in the evening, I would drive to some Pet's supermarkets there.. Got quite a few things for snuffy, t-shirts, caps, treats, travelling bags, collars, leash,books, toys & others. My entire luggage was actually just filled with doggy thing. Smile I even ordered some Beagles video tape & training tips from Discovery.com

Wahh.. Snuffy is one lucky dog! Gosh, wish we have such petstores here. Petwonderland is good but their range is quite limited. So we can expect Snuffy to show up looking good/cool on the coming makan-makan gathering.Sly

Talking about Pike's market, I can still recall the best meatloaf sandwich I've eaten..it was served at the 3 sisters or is it 3 women cafe..wonder if they are still there? ALso, do they still toss the fish around?

Re: [boon] Fleas and ticks HELP!

Hi Boon,

Yes, it is safe if the doggie licks some of it (according to my vet). This is how I use the product: Bathe the doggie, measure out the reqd amount (you can reduce but NOT increase) using the supplied syringe, mix it with the water, sponge the doggie all over using a wet cloth or sponge. I also "rendam" the paws as this is one of the main areas the ticks like to infest. After all that, pat dry and that's it! Pretty effective treament IMHO. Combine this with Frontline (for long term protection) and the furkids should be tick/flea free!

Re: [TohCS] Fleas and ticks HELP!

Hi there,

This is what I get from my vet... He said the cheapest way to get rid of Fleas just to feed your pup small pieces of garlic per week and thats all.

He said he gives his dog 3 small pcs per week (adult dog). Pls dont cook the garlic... just need to cut into small pcs will do.. your pup may not want to eat beginning.. just mix it with some meat can food and dont manja him and change the meal without finish it..

I did try my pup 3 pcs per week, it really work!

Pls remember dont give too much garlic for your dog.. it might get toxin poison.. maximum 3 small pcs per week will do..

By the way, my vet is situated in subang jaya SS14.

Hope this can help you guys ... lolSly

hi there, i use to have the same problem, but till i started to use frontline, and the fleas and ticks just vanished! now, even if jaz goes for obedient training, she will not have any fleas or ticks on her.. but before she goes out, sometime, i'll powder her up with tick powder.. a little bit here and there, but Frontline is really good.
