    My sister rescued an older German shepherd that has been roaming our
    neighborhood for a few months. She got tired of watching people kick him
    and throw stuff at him so she took him in. He was covered in ticks and
    fleas. With some small pliers and rubbing alcohol we got them all off. The
    shepherd now named Squirrel is very happy with her at her home.

    I’m at my wit’s end trying to extract my cat’s ticks that he’s picking up
    every single time he steps outside. It takes me the entire evening to get
    them out, he’s scratching, screaming and snarling, and even then I’m not
    sure if I got the complete tick out. “Get its head”. Easier said than
    done. Keep the cat in 24/7 and he turns feral, so I’ve ordered cat netting
    to confine the outdoor space, despite the cost. What annoys me the most is
    the misinformation I’ve been getting since moving to tick country from vets
    and other people. This is probably the best demo I’ve had, as it shows the
    process up-close, magnified. It’s just what I needed – but there HAS to be
    an easier way with my cat, who is a ball of crazed flying fur and fury on a
    GOOD day. I just feel exhausted, not to mention my arms and lower legs are
    a mass of scratches.

    I’m dedicating my life to the extermination of all ticks

  4. Ben Lorio says:

    I usually apply a drop of Dawn dish detergent then use the tweezers as
    mentioned, but I’m wondering if that caused the tick to spit more bad

    Thanks for this! My poor MeeMee had a tick just under her leg, and I was at
    a wits end on how to get it off. After this, the trickiest bit was getting
    her to stay still on her back long enough to get it off.

    why did you not wear latex gloves?

  7. maxwellsmart2000 says:

    I follow the same process much more less! Summer is the worst months, i
    take care of my dog with shots, hell even a clean backyard thats besides
    the point :P I get latex gloves stroke the fur for anything then just pull
    it with my fingers if its big enough then put it in a cup of rubbing
    alcohol but with dust mites or just fleas, use tweezers but most likely
    they could be larvae!

    Man my dog had one like a week ago and I showed my dad and he doesn’t care
    about them so much so he just took a little look and said it’s just dead
    skin and me beig stupid believed him and today at night I just got a pair
    of tweezers and got it out when I was holding it I saw the legs
    moving….yuckkkkk so I just killed it and threw it away.

    a look at this ‘tick’ and remove it.

    Turns out it was just a barbed seed.

    Just followed this example and it worked a treat. The wee chap did wriggle
    a bit though but he’s fine and the tick is now becoming sozzled in an
    amount of vodka.

    Mine is the size of a large jelly bean. How bad is that?

    Worked perfectly. About 30 seconds after pinching it with fine nosed
    pliers, it let go and I didn’t have to pull.
