"I have 11 weeks old female golden retriever puppy. The outdoor area where I live is full of ticks, starting which week can I give my puppy anti ticks drops at his neck?"
I have NOT used any thing on the dog against ticks until now because I believe the Puppy still real young and his skin is sensitive, however, yesterday I noticed a swell on her cheek, that swell wasn’t there 24 hours ago when I last examined her skin for ticks, around the swell area I found a small tick, so I moved it as always right away using a tweezers, today the swell still there, it got bigger and almost in a size of a small hazelnut, but it doesn't hurt her if I go with my finger over it!
is this some thing dangerous? Does this have to do with the tick bite the day before? when can I finally start giving the puppy the anti-tick protection drops, I mean that type of skin drops you put it at dog’s nick once a month?
