Places Ticks Hide
Ticks tend to hide in the ears, between the toes,
under the lips, at the back of the neck, in the armpits
and groin, under collars and under the tail.
Make sure you inspect pets on a daily basis. It can
take hours or even days before ticks can transmit
diseases to your pet. By removing the tick immediately,
the less likely it is that they will transfer any infections.
Use tweezers to remove the tick.
Have A Veterinarian Look At The Dog
Have the vet examine the dog. Keep the tick in a
sealed jar so that the vet can diagnose in the event
that your pet develops signs of disease.
