I use Avon's Skin So Soft. It has worked for years for me. Plus gives me that baby soft skin.
My coon hound has Lymes. Got it before we got her. Vet says it shouldn't be a huge problem for her. Isn't like she hunts for anything but comfort. I use Frontline for my dogs. I am really sold on it having used it for years now.
Hubby doesn't really use anything.....bugs don't like him. I do and that is all that counts.
