|A metal flea comb caught about 75% of the ticks last June when Max was completely covered with at least 500 but for the usual 3 or 4 it isn't very helpful.
Brown ticks show up well in Max's long but not very thick black fur but usually I just give him a really good scritch all over to find ticks after an outing. I had a harder time finding them in Sassy's close fitting very dense short double coat than Max's long fur believe it or not.
The tiny deer ticks would be impossible to get with a flea comb or feeling them, really you might consider using tick collars just for the trip and keep them in the freezer tightly wrapped for the next trip.
