TicksQ: My wife found about five ticks on our dog while giving him a bath. and also noticed a red pimple like bump on his skin. could that also be a tick imbedded under his skin? should we take him to his vet to check this out. he gets treated every month with "revolution" for ticks and fleas,so we can't understand how he picks them up.our pet is a toy poodle and doesn't roam around outside much. we live in florida, so the weather is hot and humid. what should we do to protect him from this infestation? any help will be much appreciated. thank you, wayne moore venice,fl A: Might want to try preventic collar which i find most successful tick control product around. available from 1800petmeds Shop for: tick, preventic collar, 1800petmeds

Dog eating grassQ: I'm looking for a substitute for "st. johns, spirulina & barley grass tablets." does petmeds offer anything? if so, what should i order? my dog is an 11 year old black lab/golden retriever mix and weighs 115 lbs. he is not over weight, just big, over six feet long laying flat. about once a month, for entire life, he won't eat for a day, eats grass, thorws up, and then he's fine. i give him pepto-bismal, per my vet and these barley tablets. it settles his stomach. i can't find these tablets anywhere. he probably eats rabbit pellets, cardboard boxes, i even found a 9mm round in his stool once. any help will be appreciated. A: I would check with 1800petmeds pharmacist if anything available. other option would be to buy these things from local health food store
