What do you guys do for tick/flea control? I found a dead tick on my dog after our hunt yesterday. I have her on frontline, and I am assuming that since the tick was dead, the Frontline did it's job. However, I am thinking of maybe adding some type of spray prior to and after the hunt. What type of topical flea/tick products do you guys find most useful?

The tick was most likely killed by the frontline. With frontline, it is spread over the body via the oils on the skin. A flea, can crawl around and come in contact with enough to kill it, where a tick pretty much has to attach itself. With or without frontline, I highly suggest keeping the dog current on it's lyme vax. More dogs contract lyme disease that we realize.
