As I posted earlier I found the 1st tick I've ever seen on my dog last weekend. Fortunately I have a dog first aid booklet in my medicine cabinet & it said to soak the tick with alcohol or tick/flea poison then pull it slowly out with tweezers making sure you get the tweezers as close to the skin as possible. (I also used a magnifying glass. That tick remover gadget sounds great!) Then swab the animals skin with alcohol. My Belgian Malinoux Shepard (mix) was so good, but then she is overall a very well behaved, smart dog. Just a bit too protective.
The first aid booklet also said to drop the tick in a small jar of alcohol & keep it to show your Vet in case your pet gets sick.
I don't live in a rural or woodsy area and can't quite figure out where she picked it up. How long do they stay on a pet? We were visiting a more rural area a week or so earlier. Thanks everyone for sharing all the information that you do....you're a good group.
