Last weekend I pulled a Tick off of Maxxie. He’s quite good for being checked for wood ticks, because I always make a game of it. Actually, I believe it was my brother BRAD who first came up with …. the “Wooden-Et-Ick”.
As soon as Maxxie hears that word, he rolls over on his side and lets me (usually without moving around) check him for “woodeneticks” …. And if I find one? He ~KNOWS~ he’s gonna get a Milky Bone for reward!
So, I thought I would do a simple search on tick removals. The above link is short video that will open up into a new window, and uses a HARTz product.
Here are some other sites you might want to research:
If you smoke and have an ashtray around, just toss the tick into the ashtray and burn it, otherwise, flush it down the toilet.
And if I can ever offer a good piece of advice – check yourself and your pets in the morning – if you check just before you go to sleep, you will be thinking about it and scratching yourself all night . or, at least I do that.
