    Hi the only tick treatment I do is a permoxin rinse, and also permoxin in a little spray bottle to spray soak her coat. Apart from that a brush and check over the body. Not sure about how to get rid of ticks once and for all around the kennel but keep the grass short etc.

    Ticks perch on top of long grass with there front legs waving about waiting for animals to brush over them then latch on.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    I use the preventic collars and they have worked great. I've only ever found one tick walking up Harley's back. Most pet supply shops like city farmers have them on sale at the moment too because it's tick season, so they cost around $12.00 and it lasts for 2 months.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Bumping this thread up..

    I may be going to Nelson Bay NSW in a few weeks for a day or two, and I have no one to look after my boy (staffy) so he will be coming with me. I am VERY worried about paralysis ticks. I don't live in a tick area so I only apply advantix to him once a month for fleas and mosquitoes (mosquitoes seem to love him!). I am aware it's fortnightly for paralysis ticks.

    Can anyone tell me if it's really bad up there with ticks? And, as discussed above, what do others recommend as a tick treatment/preventative?
