With being from the North, I never heard of ticks until we moved to the South. I know we had many pets back home and never had an issue with the ticks, we did have issues with fleas, but that is about it. So when I moved to the South, and learned of these nasty pests, it scared me to get a pet. However, when we got Bones we fell in love, and it wasn’t long after when the tick problem started.
While we kept a close eye on him when he came in from outside, we would do a quick rub down and if we found any ticks we would quickly remove them, sometimes the ticks would out smart us, and it would attach itself to Bones.
When this started to happen we turned to tick and flea shampoos, and I even purchased a flea and tick collar. After reading the caution on the back stating DO NOT touch the collar and if you do wash your hands, I knew this had to go into the trash. Why would I put something on my beloved dog that could possibly hurt us, I can only imagine the issues it could cause to our Bones.
Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a product that was not only safe for humans but also safe to pets. The Ambertick collar is an all-natural protection that helps keep the ticks and fleas away!
How does this work? Easy, the ambers rub together and let off a scent, this scent is not liked by ticks and fleas, it also rubs against the fur of your fur-baby and sends of electrostatic which will make the pest fall off.
Bones has been wearing this neat collar for a few weeks…
As you can see in the above picture Bones is wearing the ambertick collar along with his normal collar. The ambertick collar is not intended to hold your pet, so you do need to have another collar on your pet when taking him for a walk or tying him up outside.
Before getting the Ambertick Bones was getting several ticks a week. Although, it was winter we still had many nice days, and the ticks didn’t disappear. Since he has been wearing the Ambertick I have only found ONE tick on him and it was a baby and it wasn’t attached, it looks as if it were trying to run away from him.
If I were to have to pick between the Ambertick and the ones currently sold in the stores, I would without a doubt go with the Ambertick. One great thing about the Ambertick is it will keep working for a few years, you do have to wash it every month or so and over time the ambers will wear done. However, these collars are very inexpensive so having to make a purchase in a few years is nothing.
I know my fur-baby won’t be giving the ticks their dinner!
Ambertick collars come in sizes for both cats and dogs and come in different sizes and colors. The prices of the collars depend on many things and are between $16 and $42 dollars, again with only having to purchase one every few years, this is totally worth it!
