My neighbour has recently lost her dog and baby alpaca to ticks. Do ticks prefer any particular part on the neddies? Is there any 'preventative' you can use to deter them?

We used to use a product called 'Swift', which had to be poured on over the horses rumps every 12 weeks from memory. The chemical would absorb in through the skin and spread through the horses' systems to deter insects. Swift went off the market for a while, but I think it's back now, or you might be able to find something similar.

There was a post on this 2-3 days ago horsie, might be worth looking that up, it's probably still on the list a few pages back.
