Please suggest something on how to manage the ticks of my 2 yr old gsd?

hello friends i have a 2 yr old gsd. now he is very active and loves to play outside, so i take him out everyday. recently i have seen he is scratching himself , he is having ticks. i bathed him with anti tick shampoos, used sprays and every other thing possible. no matter how much i try, ticks keep coming back. today morning i saw a tick in his ear. i m really very scared as i cannot use shampoo or spray in his ear. so plz suggest something on how to manage the ticks. i m really very tensed.

First of all dont leave your dog alone to roam out, you go along with him for walk and bring him back along with you. then whatever sampoo you use, the ticks will go away from your gsd sometime and it hide in walls, aftersometime/days it will again come to your dog as shampoo power will be less. You can apply protektor/advantik tick collar once then spray your house fully with RIDD solution (it will kill ticks on your walls), do spray for every 15 days for about 3 months, you will be free from ticks. I did the same for my lab when he got ticks.

Hi Samir,
You will get RIDD solution in all pet shops/pet clinics infact the solution is chepaer and you need to mix 4ml in one litre of water and spray it all over your house and continue it 15 days once you will definitely see the improvement. You can also spray RIDD solution on your gsd also and apply it all over his body with hand gloves.

Don't use RIDD or any other chemical solutions. We forget that ticks go into hibernation mode in winters. The ticks you're finding every where in house are actually leaving his body. The ticks that are currently in his body will soon leave him. The ticks that are currently in the body are about to complete the cycle and leave his body in a week or so.
The best and most natural way to get rid off the ticks is to remove them with a plucker. Use a good anti-tick shampoo and after shampooing, remove the ticks using a plucker. The shampoo will weaken the ticks as a result of which they will come off the skin. What you have to do is to collect them in a container and then at the end of the day wrap them in a paper and burn them off.
Are you walking your dog in a park or a place which is full of grasses? If so then try to walk him on a concrete road which is some what cleaner. Or, do you let the dog to mingle with other dogs in the street?
You can use a good antitick powder which can weaken the existing ticks and repell the external ticks to get into the body. But, you'll use it just for a week or so as the ticks will soon disapear from our site.

@ navjot singh yes sir your correct, i take him to the playground as he is having his training for the dog show and the place is full of grasses, in our locality i cant train him in the street as i hav to put him off leash and that is not possible in a busy street. and i m actually against harmful chemical sprays, however i will use shampoo and powder. do you think tick collar is a good option?

Yes, you can go for anti-tick collor. The collor leaves fumes on a regular interval all over the body which weaken the ticks. I'd suggest you to use it next season as the season of ticks is almost gone.You use a good anti-tick shampoo and apply anti-tick powder on a weekly basis.
