Help!!!!!!!!!
Just got back from a walk with Shelby in the woods and pulled 3 deer ticks off her. Is there a tick shampoo that I should bath her in right away? Any advice would be great. I'm not sure, but I think I got them all. Shelby is 4 1/2 months and has recently had her limes vaccination.

Thanks,

Mike

Your pup is young enough anything I might suggest should be checked with your vet. I would call your vet and ask...they would know.

Give them another once-over later in the day, just to double check as well.

Are they on a flea and tick routine yet? A good brushing might help as well.

I HATE the ticks. Is she wearing frontline or a preventic collar? I am in despair about them too.

They may not be deer ticks....Deer ticks are REAL small, about the size of the space in a letter "a".
Always check yourself after a walk in the woods or working in the garden.
Lyme disease is nothing to screw around with. It invades every organ in your body including the brain and can be easily misdiagnosed which only gives it time to do more damage.
