I have a GSD, 7 Months old he is getting ticks, please help?
I have a GSD, 7 Months old. I know what I am gonna ask may sound too simple, but I am really worried for this issue. This is about the ticks that he is getting. Now, yesterday I found 2 ticks which were around 1 cm in size. I took out around 3 ticks, out of which 2 were 1cm in size and 1 was 1 mm. Now, just above his right, there is this big pimple kind of thing which has come up in the last 1 week.
I applied anti - fungal cream, it kind of dried, but my fault that I stopped applying the cream before it completely cured. Yesterday, I took him to the Vet and he said that this is due to the ticks and he gave me another anti fungal thing which am applying and hoping that its gonna cure it.
Now, what worries me the most is that this instance was on the face and I noticed it soon. What if it comes up on the body, which is not visible with lone eyes. What do I do to get rid of these ticks?
The Vet suggested me a tick collar. Great, it will take care of the ticks that pass through the collar. What happens to the ones which doesn't pass through the collar??
As of now, I have thought that incase I am not really convinced with the Vet for any measures for this, the only thing that I can do is stuff him completely with the tick powder and then do the regular combing.
I am kind of confused. You advices will be highly appreciable.
