non yorkie advice--TICKS
Hi ..I need some advice...A dog wondered over to my Mom's back door, she lives in a counrty setting...The dog would not leave, So I went and got her, some sort of lab mix maybe...Here's the dilemma...She is covered in ticks I have been spending the whole day and most of the evening picking ticks..I got her on a dose of frontline and they are falling off ..Im mean her body is covered 85%...She is a very sweet girl..Now Im afraid my yard is going to be infested...the ticks are a greyish color...has anyone ever encounted this before...we have tried all day to find her owners..I haven't had much experience will large dogs..Thanks Margaret

aww poor doggie. I'd take her to the vet and get a flea dip, i would think that would help. Maybe put up posters in town w/ the dog's description.
You are too sweet to spend all that time and energy helping that poor dog. :-) I'm sure he's very thankful for such caring person helping him. I'd do the same thing if that happened to me, but so many people just wouldn't take the time. HUGS
Bentley is my angel. I never knew I could love a dog so much, he is truly a miracle.

Having so many ticks can be serious. I believe they can become anemic. I would definately take her to the vet. Before you end up with a ton of vet bills.
