There are many products on the market that will help keep ticks off your pet. We feel that most work well. However, you may want to discuss with your veterinarian which products may work best in your area.

We have found that tick collars work well and they are safe for greyhounds. You can purchase these on line. They are called Preventic Tick Collars and they will work for three months. The only issue with them is that they should not get wet.
