Tick­ing off the op­tions

Sporting Gun - - SHOOTING ANSWERS -

My two fer­rets keep pick­ing up ticks which I re­move with a plas­tic hook. Can I use Front­line, and if so, how long does each treat­ment last?

I use Front­line and also re­move

Ed­ward says:

ticks with the sort of hooks you de­scribe. I’ve got to say some ticks seem re­sis­tant to Front­line from time to time, but there are other prod­ucts avail­able, so ask your vet about them. Me? I think a mixed ap­proach is best. You can also re­duce the prob­lem by us­ing treated bed­ding.

A mixed ap­proach be­tween hook and treat­ment prod­ucts works best
