Pet lovers mainly focus on keeping their pet’s from all the diseases. There are lots of medications and treatments available to keep them fit. You can refer to various resources that are useful for the removal of fleas and ticks. I got “K9 Advantix II” from “Petcarerx” site for their prevention. I am really satisfied with the result and love to recommend the same to other pet owners too.

I ended up having to switch to Bravecto for tick prevention.
Works for up to 3 months.
The frontline formula stopped working as a tick repellent on my dogs.
If an infestation occurs, best to get dogs bathed and dipped, spray house with Adams spray or use the Adams bombs, wash all dog bedding, spray corners and bottom of walls, wash bed skirts, curtains, etc.
Wait a couple days (check with veterinarian) before using any other tick repellent on dogs, whether collars, pills or liquids after having them dipped.

I still use the monthly Heartguard for heartworm prevention.
So far, so good.

Is ticks a big problem there on the islands?

My husband and I are moving to the STT in Nov/ Dec and we are trying to read up on everything and prepare for everything before we go.
I just never knew about how serious the problem with ticks are over there.

Is it in certain areas only or the whole island?

We have two dogs, a german shepherd and australian cattle dog and they like to be outside ...

Good morning!

Very interested in reading responses to jwidjaja's questions. Are ticks a problem on all three St.s? Which are the areas one might want to avoid if one has furry pets that spend time outdoors?

Thanks in advance.

It comes and goes.
Most of the time, my dogs have no fleas and ticks but every few years,
I get an infestation. Usually in the summer or dry season.
I don't think it really matters where you live.
It's happened about 3 times in the 13 years I've lived in this particular home. Not so much in prior home location.
