Hello and thanks for your question. Can you give me more information about this situation?

1) How old is your dog?

2) How long has this been going on?

3) What state do you live in?

4) What flea/tick prevention are you using and how often do you apply it? Do you use it year round?

5) Any other pets in the household?

This additional info will help me to give you the most concise answer.
