Greetings. Since I was a kid, I've been a proud pet owner of adopted mutts, my first one was already an adult. Every mutt I raised grew healthy and happy. I can say I never neglected my pets, no one of them had any serious disease. But still, I'm far from being an experienced pet dog owner. I've failed to avoid all my dogs from get ticks or maggot infestation. Both I know to tend properly, but all my prevention measures are not so effective when botflies and ticks are quite common in tropical countries. Anyway, nice to meet you and looking forward to participate.
