Spring and Summer Health Tips for Your Pet – Removing Ticks

admin  — 

There are several ways to remove the tick from your dog. You can try pulling gently on the tick until the head releases from the dog. This does not always work well. You may want to use a tweezers when you do this to ensure that the tick does not bite you. Oftentimes the tick persistently holds on and when you finally pull hard enough, the body of the tick frees up in your fingers while the head remains firmly embedded in the skin. This often causes inflammation and a small red bump to appear at the original site of the tick bite. Because of the threat of Lyme disease, it is important to remove the tick before it has been embedded for 24 hours. This will help in with preventing Lyme disease from infecting a dog.
