    Are there any natural repellants? The only time I ever encounter ticks are during our hikes. I've pulled 3 off of Rory and 2 off Emma in the past month (I check them as soon as we get home). I only use Advantix as needed... since I hardly ever deal with fleas I'd hate to treat them monthly with chemicals.

    Any natural solutions I can spray on them before hiking?

    Thanks! :D

    Virbac makes a flea/tick wipe (all natural) that supposedly works for up to three days on dogs if they stay dry. Also safe for humans, but it only last for a few hours due to sweat. Their is a spray as well, but it has to be shaken really well before being sprayed, or it won't reconstitute right and you're basically spraying your dog with water. lol

    Haven't used it as of yet, but I am very interested in using the wipes on the ferrets and rats for fleas if needed.
