Tick has 21 days life cycle so u have to break that by apply anti tick shampoo weekly for 6 weeks use fipronil spray once in 21 days 2 times and some time u have to control environment like home or kennel with weekly spray with rid sol so we will control both same time and your dog become tick free then wear tick collar.

Advantix is one of best methods for ticks control. Don't give bath to your dog atleast for 15 days after application. Advantix is effective for one month. Do you have any other dog in you house? Do you have open area at your house?
