I HATE You!
You cause me to be shaven down.
Oh....... Last week, i was booasting abt my coat and keeping it long enough to trim a poodle teddy bear cut.. Now its all over. BACK to square one..
The culprits that caused my coat to be shaven down.
All of them drown inside the mixture of oil and soapy water.
A close up on one of them! TICKS!!!!
I hate you i hate you i hate you...
Now... i am back to my nearly naked fur coat... I feel so cold....
(JJ: Pardon us for being such a drama mamma.
As all of you know, i had been trying to keep sweety coat as long as possible to trim into the teddy bear cut. A unforunate thing happen, my parents took sweety out on the normal sunday routine, they stubble upon a tick infested area unknowingly. When we realise it, it was too late. On Monday morning, we found ticks at numerous places on her body. Use the tweezer to pull them out and drown them in mixture or burn them. We had to shave her down as this is the easilest way to spot any ticks. We took all the necessary control. Frontline spot on her ytd, tink we found a few dead ticks today. The home groomer came today to shave her down. We use the blower and happy to say. Sweety is tick-free for now.
The next few days will be cruicial to us. We will monitor her and see if the infestion spread to the house. I hope not. So far.. all the ticks we caught had been males. No female yet. Keeping our fingers crossed here.
On the side note, sweety is still energtic and bouncy. Think she is enjoying all the attention she is getting. As she recieve up to abt 6 massages by us everyday as we comb thru her fur coat.
She is extremly happy after we shave her down. I guess she felt so much lighter.. Haha.
We will keep up with the battle and update you guys as soon as the war is over.
Do pray for us that the infestion did not spread into our house!)
