But I have two dogs and live near Bukit Batok.....one of my dogs gets a tick every few days, the other dog...never!!!

I think there are a lot around now with the weather we are experiencing. They (the dogs) are bathed every week with tic shampoo and now I have a brush to brush them daily.

Am hoping that will help too. :-)

I lived in a condo in district 10 for 8 years and my dog always had ticks there. Now I live in an old black and white with a huge garden and my dogs never have ticks.

There are lots of them around though. I used to put garlic through the dog's food, it is supposed to put the ticks off but they still came. Crawling up the wall of the condo. All very lovely... They're a pain to get rid of and you must constantly check the dog after walks and clean it up so they don't end up inside your home.

We live in Little India near some vacant land and we find ticks on our dog.

Do cats get ticks as well?

I don't know if cats get ticks, but would expect so yes. Ticks don't seem to be too discerning, I have picked one off my 3 year old son...
