What do you use for your stud dogs and pregnant bitch to keep fleas and ticks off your dogs.

The weather is a bit cooler and finally got a bit of rain and it's an explosion... all our dogs are scratching...

We have a new stud dog, fist in several years, ......is there a flea tick control you suggest ?

I had that explosion a few years ago on some rural land I own that my dogs and I trained on. the ticks were imbeded in trees a few feet up and on all the taller grasses first thing I did was spray the whole area (about 2 acres) with an insecticide from a sprayer on a garden hose. I think it was pyretherin based but don't remember the name.

it was a chore, but my first course of action for fleas/ticks has always been to treat the area.

not sure what is available and safe now but never had any issues with the pyrethrins. they are shorter acting though.

I use Biospot Active - it is also pyrethrin-based.
