Question: I have a yearling filly that is loaded with ticks up high between her back legs. I must have pulled 10 off her yesterday and yet she still has 10 there yet. I didn't know how sensitive she'd be to pull them off. My other horses don't seem as bothered by them, have pulled the odd one of their face. Is there anything I can use to get rid of the ones on my yearling? Thanks!
Answer: There is a product you can use on horses that is normally used for dogs. K9 Advantix would work but could be quite costly and has no odor. A product for large animals is called Cylence which works very well is less costly but has a foul odor.
You can consult your vet which product would work best for you.
