For dogs the product Revolution is good for all other parasites but not great for ticks. Most veterinarians recommend newer oral meds like Bravecto, Nexgard or Simperica. Topical K9Advantix is ok too but not as effective as the oral meds.
Dogs are a lot more naturally resistant to Lyme Disease than humans are. Only 10% of dogs bitten by a Lyme positive tick get sick. In humans 90% of people get sick.
Dogs have good preventative meds. People have squat. The most important thing is preventing a tick bite and if you get bit, getting the tick off promptly. You won’t feel a tick bite. They stay attached in the same spot for 5-7 days then let go and fall off to lay eggs. They start off the size of a pin head and end up the size of your pinky finger nail. Lyme disease transmission, fortunately, requires time. 24-36 hrs of the tick feeding before the tick infects it’s host. An end of the day check of your body -all over- and removal of a tiny tick will drastically reduce the chance of getting infected.
Be tick wise. You DON’T want Lyme Disease
