Ticks on Donkeys
[Return to Topics]

Hi, anyone know what I can use to get ticks off large mammoth donkeys? I just bought a pair of them and they are infested with ticks. I haven't brought them home yet and would ideally like to treat them where they are so that they can leave the ticks behind. Can you use dog flea and tick products on them? Supposedly the owner recently dusted them with Sevin dust for lice, guess that doesn't work for ticks and I do see hair loss in some spots on both. Appreciate any advice. Magda

What we use ['Only' when the ticks are bad] is the yellow sulfer salt blocks.

Bald spots are more likely from parasites or rubbing than ticks. We just pull them off our horses and donkeys and treat the area with antiseptic or alcohol. Rumor has it that garlic is good repellent for ticks and flies.
