I know! It was latched onto her ear, Felicia, and was engorged because it was biting her. :( It was really, really, really, REALLY disgusting!!!!!!!! I pulled it off with one of Lanna's wipes and didn't know what it was until I saw it! Luckily we had some spare Revolution that we didn't give her at the end of last season so we put that on her. She is off to the vet tomorrow!

Eeee I know :( ...it's so gross and it's still haunting me!
I am almost certain she picked it up in my sister's backyard running around with little Winston. She has a huge yard with lots of bushes and things and they were out there yesterday for a long time with her hubby while I was inside enjoying a birthday dinner with my sister. What's worse is that poor Jeebies would have picked it up on her birthday! What a mean birthday gift ...
Either that or today because she was out with him again briefly in the backyard again. Hopefully Winston doesn't have any!

What do you do for first aid after you've pulled it off? Can they cause an infection? :confused:

Mine have never had one ............. yet.
Garth...they can cause an infection if pieces of them are left on the dog...and also if they bite and they have something...they are known to carry Lyme disease for example. I don't know much else...I'll probably find out more from the vet because I'm taking her in since she was bitten.
