Doggy Dilemma: Icky Ticks


After dealing with the mange, now I'm having a new problem. This time, I have fleas- small and big ones. They cause me to itch alot and It's starting to annoy me!!!

I scratch in the morning. I scratch at noon and even at night time. But the itchiness worsens during the midday because it's very hot. I'm not sure if it's because they woke up late and would prefer to eat a bloody brunch or purely because my temperature's higher at the peak of the sun's daily rotation.

Could somebody help me out?!? My master is currently using a soap (Bay-O-Pet Flea and Tick Soap...something) which was recommended by our neighbor but we're still unsure of its effectivity because it's been raining for the past couple of days and it would be too cold if I'd be given a bath.

Anyway, Master and I have been researching about ticks. I've discovered that the most common tick infestations in Asian countries are caused by Brown Dog Ticks. If you want to read more about them, here's a good reference about those darned parasites:
