It's important to know that there are 2 types of ticks. A dog tick and a deer tick. The deer tick is the one that transmits the deadly Lyme disease. A tick needs to be on your pets body for at least 48 hrs to get Lyme disease so check your pet over religiously and especially if he or she has been in taller grasses.
Don't panic if you see a tick on your pet. Romeo just had one near his mouth and then one week later a new one by his eye!
The dog tick is black. The deer tick is grey. The first symptom you may see if your dog gets Lyme disease is lameness in more than one leg. Usually at least 3 of their legs.
Removing Ticks: You must get the head and the body or your dog can get infected. Getting the tick to let go and back out is the ideal solution.
Tea Tree oil suffocates the tick plus it annoys the tick. Apply near the head of the tick with a q-tip.
You can also purchase special tick removing tweezers. Follow the directions on the package.
Make sure you dispose of that tick by killing it dead, dead, dead or it will live and breed in your house.
NEVER EVER squish the tick with your fingers or YOU COULD BECOME INFECTED.
