    Mark, I switched from Frontline to Flea4X Plus that I buy from 1-800-Pet Meds.

    It is. Have you heard the song?

    There is no question that preventing tick bites on our dogs is important.
    I wonder if all of these chemicals are taking a toll on the health of our pups in the form of cancer, allergies, arthritis, etc. please do not think I am a cook. I will keep using these agent on myself and my dogs. I just wonder!

    It would be difficult to assess your culinary skills from your post but some might consider you a Kook!

    On a serious note, Duluth Trading Company offers a 'tick remover tool' that is great to properly remove a tic from yourself or your dog, it is small enough to put on your key chain. I recently used it on my wife, it worked great on removing a fairly imbedded tic. So far she has had no ill effects but it has only been three weeks.

    I know this post is about avoiding bites....but it is important to have a plan B...

    I don't think there is ever enough precaution when it comes to ticks. I am just getting over lymes disease. It is horrid! I don't wish it on anyone. I will do whatever is needed to NOT get that again.
