Default Ticks + sulfur (dogs)

I read that you can feed sulfur to horses to help fend off ticks .. can you do the same with dogs?
How much do you give them?

Thanks in advance!

Yes you can. Can I suggest you purchase Pat Coleby's 'Natural Pets' book.

Funny, i've heard that horses don't process sulfur so it does nothing for them

We used to put sulphur actually on our dog when it had fleas bad, worked wonders!

Believe it or not ivomectin cattle drench is fantastic as a wormer for dogs, takes care of the ticks too 1ml/50kgs.

ETA: whoops, no idea on the sulfur front, just know that Ivomectin works well.

OK, does it pose any threat to dogs? I'm seriously over ticks up here my house and backyard smell like old moth balls from trying to battle these evil little buggers!!!

frontluine spray works but the downside is if using a spot on they recomend you do it every 2 weeks which makes it very expensive..the frontline spray works out cheaper and if you do find a tick you can spray directly on it... frontine isnt reg lol for use in humans but it is effective if you find a tick on yrself just dab it on and tick dies

Nope, not that I'm aware. I got this remedy off the vets that come out to community. They usually take some Ivomectin 'baits' around (bits of bread with a glob of margarine and half a mil of Ivomectin) and throw them out. Seems to do the trick, not sure how often you should do it though. The stuff they use is just the clear liquid, comes in a brown box, I'll try and find the link.

There is a product called Permoxin that is a rinse which is left on for both dogs and horses which repels ticks and fleas, have used it on both with good results.
