That's good to know. With all that hair I'm not sure I would know if my coons did have a tick so its probably a good thing they don't care for the great outdoors. Did I misunderstand,thinking that his problems with walking are because of his deformities that weren't necessarily caused by the ticks?
I have had guineas,ducks,peas and chickens so am not really sure who is eating what but even living on the edge of woods they keep the biting population down - and feed the wild coons.

thats good to know. the coconut oil, also assume the cooking oil rubbed on the fur often will deter the ticks?

what did you do with the ticks that fell off? I hope you killed or flushed them?

those darn ticks are scary and dangerous. the guineas sure do their job. I am only down to 4. not sure what happened to them. sometimes they will just fly away. I get them at an auction. gonna get more, maybe tomorrow. the auction is every friday. I might go tomorrow if I feel OK.
