Every once in a while my lab will pick up several ticks. Normally about 2 weeks after he's had his flea/tick combo treatment. That's fine, I find them and pull them. They really eat him up though. I can find each and every spot he's ever had one. It starts as a lump, then scabs and eventually loses the hair until it regrows.
Anyone else seen this? I've never had a dog react this badly. He's 110% but I just wanted to make sure. I'll take him in when my mutt goes to the vet in a few weeks to see what they say too.

Edit to add a photo of him seeing as hes now 14 months... (Sitting side saddle lazy, he's hot after running a few bumpers this afternoon)

I've seen it happen like that on a dog.

I see he still sitting like a pup. That frustrated me so much with my Tess. She finally got out of it but it was killing me for a while.
Hunt hard, rest when you're dead.

When the bumper comes out, he goes in to work mode and straightens up. It's been hot and humid down here today and he suffers in it badly, I cut him some slack if I haven't asked him to sit and he's just resting.
