I pulled a tick off Jeebies' ear this aft...oh my gosh I've never even seen one but ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww...
Eeeeeew, even worse!!!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!Eeeeeew, even worse!!!
Poor Jeebies... Where do you figure she picked it up?
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.What do you do for first aid after you've pulled it off? Can they cause an infection?
Mine have never had one ............. yet.
