We've been lucky here. No ticks.

This is the first year I've seen so many here. We have lots of things that usually eat them, so one or two a year is all I find. So far, I've found 4 on different firkids. We're ahead of normal, but not nearly as bad as just a little west in Williamsburg. That place is crazy with them.

Oh Lord, can you spray the yard with something that will get the ticks but not hurt the furkids or other wildlife?

Nope. Anything that will kill ticks will also kill bees. We have a pretty good population of honey bees, and I don't want to hurt them. I just need to keep up the spearmint oil fly spray on the horses and get Bingo a new Soresto collar. The kitties get drops, but since they're inside, I only do it every 45 days. No fleas so far.

Bingo says it's too hot. He spent the day under the fan. No chance for ticks because he only went out for quick potty breaks.

Today is bath day at the groomer. He's had yard baths the past couple times because it's been nice and warm. Today is still warm enough, but he needs his nails trimmed, and I think he'd enjoy being fancied up. Besides, his favorite groomer works at PetSmart so he can shop for his own treat.

Talk about a dog's life. I thought of when I saw this t-shirt that read. 'I work hard so my dog can have a better life.'

Don't want to hurt our friendly lil pollinators! Maybe it will be so hot for a couple days the ticks die off?

We can only hope. I haven't seen any more on him or the horses for a while, so maybe it was just a wave of them. His bath made sure he didn't have any fleas or ticks, so I think we're good for a while.

Last night, Bingo exploded. I don't know what he ate when he went out with me to feed the horses, but about 20 minutes later, he threw up. YUCK! Fortunately, once it was out, he was better. He's been fine all day today, so I guess he got into something awful while he was out. I hope he doesn't go back to it tonight.

I caught him this morning snoodling something in the back yard. I couldn't tell what it was, but he left it when I told him to leave it. I'll have to check it out when I go to put more seeds in the garden. If it's gross, I'll put it in a bag and get rid of it. There are disadvantages to having a Hoover dog. Razz

I hear you. And the scary part about it, is that makes him suscipitable to accendental poisoning.

Shocked Yeah... We don't use mouse/rat poison, and I don't keep dewormers in the barn. I buy what I need, use it, and don't keep the tubes where the hound can get to it. He has been trained not to eat out of the horse tubs since Kina takes meds that can make him sick. So, unless he finds something we didn't put there, he should be pretty safe. I do try to keep an eye on him. It is a source of worry - silly hound.

Nope. He must have eaten all of whatever it was. He hasn't gone anywhere different this morning, so I guess he's back to his normal self. No excitement today. It's been rainy, so he spent most of the day sleeping. Smile

We found a new drug that we want to try during grass pollen season. Apoquel is supposed to relieve itching. Bingo is much better than he was at this time last year, but the pollen is so bad that he is itchy. It looks like it will be expensive, but we should be able to take him off it once the grass dies down. Waiting to hear from the vet on whether they recommend it.

Keeping my fingers crossed......allergy relief is a godsend when you're suffering from an incessant itch. I can sympathize with the poor pup.

Maybe you can get a discount of some kind on it? From the pharmaceutical company maybe?

I can check, but I'm not hopeful. I've looked for discounts for horse meds (from the pharma company and from vets), and it's almost impossible. But, it's worth the money if he gets relief and doesn't have to stay on the prednisone. That's cheap stuff, but the long term side effects are really scary.
