Since moving to Florida and into the home of my in-laws, I've had to overcome the fact that I'm going to be living with two very large dogs. I don't even know what kinds of dogs they are, but they're huge. They've gotta be part horse or something. These dogs bark constantly, they jump on me as if they're only 5 pounds and they stick their gross wet noses all over me. Yuck! The worst part...THEY HAVE TICKS.
These tiny little critters are everywhere. My mother-in-law said she found them in her bed. I found them in the kitchen, the car seat (ahhh!), Jason's clean baby bottles, and my bedroom floors (even though we do everything we can to keep the dogs out of my room).
These ticks have been a noticeable problem for about two weeks now and its only getting worse. We brought the dogs to the vet and put them on Frontline. So far, I don't see any ticks on the dogs, but I still see them all over the house! What the heck!?!?!
Is this normal? Will they eventually die off if we keep using Frontline on the dogs? Has anyone had tick-killing success stories?
*ps: I'm not trying to diss my in-laws or anything. I love them, and I know they are stressed about the bugs too. I just seem overly stressed about it because I'm a big wuss when it comes to bugs!
