My dog seems to itch a lot,help?

When I complained that Gini seems to itch a lot, I was suggested "Bulfo Powder" by the vet. Used it...she seems to remain better for 2-3 days...again all the same. Today I had a chance to get hold of an ectoparasite from her body. Did a little experiment with it..... :p ;) Aim: To identify and annihilate it. Aids: Match stick and Bulfo Powder. Method: I tried quenching it with a match stick...it got weak but still moving. I had put some Bulfo powder on and around it....even after 30min it was moving and around the area which was dusted with the powder. Observation: Neither did it kill nor repelled the tick. Inference: Species identified - Tick, specifically "brown dog tick" [http://www.dog-obedience-training-online.com/images/removing-ticks-from-dogs.jpg] They are pretty strong - not very easy to annihilate. The powder was a crap....bad medicine...seemed to have no apparent effect on the tick. >> Are we Indians all naughts that they sell us all these holly shits...??!! Now, do we have any alternatives (except Tick-collar) to get rid of these ectoparasites, like some shampoos and all??????? [Sounds kiddish but did and felt like sharing.... :-D].

Now, something serious.....
Important Information:

1. 5-10% of fleas live on animals and rest is believed to thrive in the surrounding of the animal. The treatment of the surrounding of the infested animal along with the animal is recommended.

2.* Fleas transmit tapeworms, ticks transmit Lyme disease, Tick paralysis. Ecto-worms are also a cause of endo-worms.

3. It has a long life-cycle [http://www.afraidtoask.com/ly me/lymelifecycle.html] & [http://www.ah.novartis.com/im ages/cab/tick_lifecycle.gif].. .an extended treatment is needed.

Regular bathing in clean water and tick collar seem to be the best solutions.
