This has been the worst season we have had in memory where I live. I am usually able to avoid having to use flea/tick preventatives in the boonies. But Desoto picked up several in under a week and he had not even been out in the fields or tall grass where the deer path is and I usually see them. Ewwwww. I removed them and bathed him and he is now checked even when he goes out for a quick pee. I used Advantix on him for the first time and seems to be doing good so far.
