How do you keep ticks away from dogs?
Anti parasitic medication, like "Frontline" and "K-9 Advantics" keep ticks off of dogs. But cutting down long grasses and trimming bushes and tree limbs keeps ticks from climbing onto the tips and getting on your dog when it brushes by.

Answer . Most dogs are not interested in mice with the exception of breeds that were used to keep the rat population or mice population down such as the Terrier breeds. I've seen pet mice sleep on a dog and once saw a pet mouse sleeping with a cat. Cats are what keep rodents away.
\nIf they are wild birds, keep the dog food INSIDE. they should not bother the pool, though.
Another tough one! Cats don't actually like the food usually, this is normally a power struggle to who runs the house the cats or the dog, usually once power has been affirmed this behavior will calm down a bit, speak to your vet and find out about animal behavior and trainers, in the meantime feed …them in separate rooms.

It's by Steve Miller. The song is called "Fly Like An Eagle.". WRONG......Steve Miller's song says "Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future", not ticking. Check your lyrics!!
Certainly especially male dogs because if they start playing rough or get into a fight th pregnant dog could lose her puppies !!!!!!!
Paralysis ticks in Australia cause shortness of breath, loss of voice (the dog tries hard to communicate its distress but cannot do so vocally owing to paralysis), and eventually paralysis of the limbs.. The majority of ticks attach to the front third of the body. Medical intervention is essential …if your dog is to live; simply finding and removing the tick won't help by the time the symptoms are evident. Get to a vet immediately rather than waste time looking for the tick. (MORE)
When your dog gets a tick, the tick grips onto the dog and sucks its blood. So the tick swells up to about the size of a pea. Use your fingers and check all through your dog's coat, especially under the legs and ears. You should be able to find a tick quite easily and remove it. It might have laid e…ggs so you should get a tick shampoo for the dog. (MORE)
You can spray them with any mosquito repellent...but you need to make sure the dog does not lick the repellent because it may make him sick. Buddy says, in response . . . Well, it would be virtually impossible to keep the dog from licking the repellent. Have you ever owned a dog? But most impor…tant, DO NOT EVER use any chemicals of this kind on a pet. You will be risking sickness and serious problems if you do. DEET is especially harmful to cats and dogs. It can cause convulsions. Don't use anything other than veterinarian-approved preventatives like Frontline and Advantage. These do contain some mosquito repellent and they are safe for your pet. For that matter, DEET is very harmful to humans, too. Tests have linked DEET with brain damage. It can also cause, at the least, nausea and vomiting. If you have anything containing DEET, you should dispose of it immediately. It's really dangerous stuff. (MORE)
ticks are small parasitic insects that feed on the blood of animals and humans.

Dogs get ticks from outside. When a dog goes out they roll aroundand lay around in the grass. Making it easy for the ticks to get onthem.

If your neighbor does not train the dog then it is both the dog AND your neighbor that are seriously DUMB & IGNORANT, call the local DOG POUND to get the dumb dog.
a shock collar that you can controll, make the plant in the door, seem like something negative so that it will avoid the plant, but if you use a shock collar, don't use it with him/her on anything else for punishment.
Contrary to popular belief, yes they can. My dog has a tick collar and we frontline her regularly and she still gets ticks.
For about a week or two just because the mom will start fighting them so you just have to show the mom that the others won't harm them
ask again and tell us why they're giving it away. She growled a little bit but nothing much. She's bad with other dogs and stuff--she's hard to walk. They've been talking about it for awhile but I had no idea it was this serious!. try obedience school...
A good way to keep cats away from dog doors is to leave something with the dogs scent a short distance away from the door. This will alert the cat of a dogs presence or future presence. This will also prevent a dog and cat fight.
try to remove the hairs around the tick then gently get your gfront teeth around the tick and bite it off
Don't burn it or poke at it it might make it barf releasing toxins into your dog. Pull it out straight without twisting it (its head might break off if you twist it). There are also tools at pet shops for getting the tick out easier.
What my mom does is.... 1. get a cutip, and put alcohol on it. rub it gently on the tick. DO NOT TRY AND RIP THE TICK OFF! 2. the alcohol causes the tick to let go a little bit. make sure it doesnt fall. pull off the tick with tweezers. 3. my favorite part. BURN IT!!! that's the only way… to kill em.' just put it on something unflammable, and light it with a match. (MORE)
Probably the head of the tick if you didn't remove it correctly.Dump some mineral oil on the tick, [enough to completely cover it]and then gently twist tick counter clockwise while gently tuggingtick out. Do not try to sqeeze it out. It will eventually bedislodged by the body's own defences against …foreign objects. (MORE)

Yes, depending on the area you live will depend how common it is.But a dog can get a tick or flee anytime of the year. If you aretaking your pet to forests or mountains (or farms) it's importantto always check your pup over.
Maybe, maybe not. You should keep a tortoise away from a cat and dog unless the cat or dog will try to attack it.
you just have to stay near it. you should keep it inside and when it needs to go to the bathroom, you should put it on a leash and stay near it.
It is very unlikely, though not impossible, as ticks tend to have one blood meal before dropping off the animal to grow into the next stage of their life cycle. Ticks like long grass and woodlands where they quest for a meal by wafting their arms in the air to catch passers by. If one dog has a tick… and the other has been in the same places they probably have one too. (MORE)
put the tick in a bag then take your dog and the tick to a vet to see if the tick had a disease.
Ticks are very bad. They suck up blood from your dog. What to do when your dog has a Tick. Put olive oil on the tick because it suffocates them, then get tweezers and pull them out. How do I know there is tick in my dog? Pet your dog and you should feel a bump. When you do, look into your do…g's fur and you should see one. What do ticks look like? Ticks look like June beetles except gray. heads look like little spiders but ticks are a little more round. And they are a little smaller. (Go on google imagines and type in Tick and you will see what I mean. (MORE)
You have to find some way to log in and feed him. He has to be fed fourteen times. You have to wait at least a day between feedings, but you don't have to feed him at EXACTLY the same time everyday, you can be up to 23 hours late. If you can't log in and feed him, and he runs away, it will cost $2 F…armCash to get him back from the pound. That's not so bad. Enjoy your vacation. Your farm will be waiting for you when you come home. (MORE)
Fence it. Putting a fence around your rabbits is a simple solution but bare in mind that your rabbits will be stressed out even if your dogs are fenced away from them, especially 4 large dogs. They can still hear, smell and see the dogs which are simply large predators to them. It will probably be …hard to raise any rabbits in this environment because it is the rabbits basic survival instinct to protect the herd by not having babies if they feel a threat and also by eating their young if they do have them.

You can buy a rubber snake from a local toy store and place it around the dog food bowl. Be sure that you move it around from time-to-time so that the birds don't get wise and realize it's fake. This also works with a fake owl by hanging it in the tree.
You shouldn't use dogs to keep snakes away from you, there is no particular breed that could do that. Also, the dog could be bitten and killed by a venomous snake. If you don't like snakes that much then move to Hawaii where there are no snakes, due to the population of mongooses.
yuck brand.... go to ebay or amazon! you have to be spacific. so on ebays the key words are: Yuck for dogs, cats, horses for amazon:naturvet bitter yuck no chew spray REMEMBER! Be sure you don't but it ON the bed. put it AROUND the bed. like the legs of the bed and the sides of the bed.
Because if you really love your dog then you shouldn't give it away unless people want to take your dog away. Such as the animal control. Or something like that. If you have no reason to give it away then dont give it away. Just keep it and care for it.
Depends on the breed of dog, with most more aggressive breeds, it might be smart to keep him away. However, in wolves, wild dogs, and even domestic breeds, it is a common instinctual reaction of the female to not to let the male near her puppies. If the female doesn't growl or try to bite him or scr…atch his eyes out or something, it's probably safe to let him near, if she does, probably not. A mothers instinct is (almost) never wrong. (MORE)
If you mean out on walks? We trained ours to come back by taking it on small walks and giving it a treat before letting them off, let them get someway before calling them over, when they do come over give them a treat. If you repeat the process enough it will just learn to automatically come back to… you. (MORE)
While many dogs are good with children, some are best kept away from children for safety purposes. Children don't usually know how to handle dogs and the dogs can misinterpret their play as a sign of danger and cause potential harm to these children.
Absolutely not! It may even attract them. But it would tend to keepother animals away - like cats and rabbits. Any type of animal thata dog chases will realize there is a dog there and keep away.
Mothballs have a very strong unpleasant scent. This would tend tokeep dogs, cats, rabbits, deer and any animal that can smell awayfrom an area.
honestly, there is a reason why people created bug spray. and Ihonestly never had a tick ON my skin before but I know that bugspray does a pretty good job of keeping ticks and other insectsaway for the most part.
