wood tick season

Are woodticks out yet this year? Also would like to know people's opinion and advice on different preventatives for dogs? First year with our dog, and we take him out for walks in the bush quite a bit and will be taking him to the lake this year. He is basically an indoor dog though, so don't want ticks everywhere. Eeek Thanks !

I used to live in the country and the best thing I found to use for my pets (and myself and child) was rose geranium essential oil. Works amazing, and you don't need much of it.

Thanks that's actually just what my cousin told me as well... put a drop on base of tale and in between shoulder blades daily. And it's natural! I think I'll look for some today.

Where do you buy that rose oil? And would you apply it every day?

Bravecto for sure. Ask your vet about it.

Going to be a bad year again...

Lots of wood ticks out already. I've found over a dozen on us and the dog so far. We gave the dog Bravecto pill (chew) as well and it's working very well, any that I'm pulling off of him are already dead. I only wish they had it for cats and humans!  
I've done a lot of research into the rose geranium oil as well and I'm going to give it a try since, from what I've read, it is safe for cats as well.
