Erhlichiosis is serious. I have a hound that got it when he was younger. Although he got better he never got back to 100%. Most of the folks I talked to that had hunting dogs with it said they never got back to what they were. From my understanding a dog can test positive up to a year later.

What sort of symptoms did infected dogs show?

I've been getting them off the hound and me both. I use this stuff called Ranger Ready from Amazon. It's kinda like Sawyer brand spray. Works real good. I've only got bit when I wasn't using it this year.

I douse all my turkey hunting equipment with sawyers, let it dry and it's worked for me for years. Every once in a while Walmart puts Sawyers on clearance, I buy all I can get. I use it on garden boots, yard work sneakers.

I just pulled a dead tick off me. I haven’t worked cattle in a couple months I wonder how long that ivermectin pour on I got soaked in my shirt is going to keep working.

Seems like a win win. Just had some strange bowel movements for a couple days and very slight jaundice in my eyes 🤷‍♂️

This has got to be cheaper than monthly tick treatment. Where do you buy it and how much?
I think mine is Bayer Permectrin. Around $30 for half gallon from memory. I bought online. I don't spray it on my dog, but do use it as a perimeter treatment around my woodline. It's 10% I think. A couple of ounces per gallon.
