Ticks And Lyme Disease

Kel - May 5

I'm totally stressing out! I am 5 months pregnant and we have a dog. My husband walks the dog daily in a wooded area and as a result the dog gets ticks. We got the dog K( Advantix but I have been finding ticks handing off her and crawling on my rug. I itch all the time and worry constantly about getting bit. Whenever I bring it up to my husband he says what do I want him to do, get rid of the dog. Obviously I do not want to get rid of the dog but the dog does not have to sleep on the bed and he can try to walk somewhere else or call the vet for somethign else.Does anyone have advice for me. Advice about getting rid of this ticks which may lay eggs in the house, or advice about what to say to my huband. HELP

On top of getting the K also try getting a flea nad tick spray. There is a really really good one in a blue bottle ( I can't remember what it is called) everytime you take the dog out for a walk spray it around his paws and maybe it will help repel the ticks from attatching to his paws to then climb up. I really wish I could remember what it was called. It is veterinary recomended and it works very well. I think (I'm not sure with this) that there are also things you can plug into your outlets at your house to repel fleas and ticks. Don't know if it would even work if they have them, but it would be worth a shot.
