Hello Lymeunknown, I also have a dog who just thurned 3 and has anaplasmosis from a tick bite. She is allergic to tick collars. Even though she is on frontine plus I have to check her carefully after being outside--we have 8 acres in the hudson valley-new york the heart of tickcountry. She is in in-door dog but I am outside alot which is why I got lyme in the first place. Anyway... I found a vet who is holistic and gave me the name of a repellent called FLICKS. It is used for horses but it is all completely natural and she swares it repells ticks on her dog. I got some and used it this weekend. It is a concentrate to be mixed with water. I found it online-google it.
I don't think lyme feces will give them lyme but it could give them other things like worms viruses, etc.
I can give you a copy of under your skin if you can't get one. Send your email to me mine is in my profile. Blessings
