    Poor Milo, as if he doesn't have enough to contend with lately, he keeps getting ticks!

    I've been pulling ( carefully) at least one a day off my little guy :(
    He's never had them until this last week, Alfie and Molly always had the odd one. Nothing like this though!

    Anything I can use in conjunction with advantage?

    He must be sharing a bush with a hedgehog or fox or something. Poor boy!

    I used some front-line combo that seemed to do the trick for ticks (useless for fleas) other than that you could get some Advantix (I think that's what its called) from the vet.

    I was listening to an owner of a pet shop the other day telling someone that ticks are rife this summer!!

    Poor Milo!! xx

    Oh Milo :rolleyes: he must have found a new place to play in a tick hotspot. Have you seen the electromagnetic collar tags that claim to kill fleas and ticks? - not sure if they have had good reviews but I would imagine you could use one conjunction with Advantage.

    How is he coping without Molly?

    I've just Googled and apparently Advantix is for dogs :eek: I think the vet receptionist misinformed me. Like I said though. Front-line combo has been great for ticks. Good luck!

    Lots of options, thanks everyone xx

    Aurelie, he's doing ok. He misses her dreadfully of course but slowly but surely getting his bounce back.
    I'm not sure what would be worsem , Losing a sibling after 15 years or this.
    I'm giving him loads of attention, cuddles play time and taking one day at a time. Xx

    MM, Stronghold does fleas and tics. Would be worth a try.

    Sorry I really can't add anything useful, but I did enjoy the 'ticked off' pun :eek: :p
