Hi all. My husband camped near Jefferson Lake on the SE side of Mt. Jefferson last week and encountered a TON of ticks. To be honest...I have not seen a tick since I moved to Oregon 3 and a half years ago, but, I guess they are here. Please, please if you are taking your dog to the mountains now or this summer, use tick prevention. Start with Frontline plus, that should be enough unless you are visiting a heavily tick infested area.
Remember ticks can transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever...and other diseases not so common here.
