I have 1 year 4 months old Labrador dog he was infected with some parasites (ticks and fleas) i applied RIDD lotion medicine, for around 1 month he was fine but again he is infected with those parasites. I wanted to know whether again RIDD will help to remove for the 2nd time or any other effective medicine. Please help me...

Hello Prashanti,

Ticks and flea are ecto parasites present over the animals body.They complete there life cycle over the animals body.If a dog is infested by fleas or ticks,You can consult your vet.Your vet is going to examine the level of infestation of ticks and fleas over your dog's body.You may also avoid taking your dog to places where the cattle graze and street dogs sit .Before applying any medicine to your dog consult your vet.You can also purchase anti-tick shampoo and powder for application.

You need to check how your dog is getting infected again. He may get in touch with an infected dog or may be you allow your dog to stay very long in grassy ground. If you wish to use RIDD, the golden rule is :
Give your dog bath with a good shampoo, allowing him to dry up all day and then use RIDD the next day. If you use shampoo and RIDD together, it won't show it's best result.
Use Bayer's Anti Tick collar. Let the collar be on his neck all time. But make sure you remove it at the time of bathing or when the animal is sick.
