Hiking with our dog, we got into a nest of brown dog ticks. Our vet confirmed they are ticks and is guessing they are brown dog ticks. They are tiny, not one quarter the size of pinhead. We have washed all our bedding, clothes, dog pillows and sprayed advantage on the furniture and rugs that our dog has been near. Our dog is on Bravecto and our vet recommended a spray also, so we sprayed him with advantage treatment. What additional lengths should we pursue?
