Any Ideas on how to remove a deer tick. Tashia has one underher chin and its huge. I have heard many differant options....Olive Oil, hot match, alcohol. I would hate to try a thousand ways just to have it continue to grow. Thank you.
I just use tweezers and then clean it. One time I used pliers to get on out of my cat because thats all I had. And like Lisa said, make sure you get the head. Those things are evil. I got Lymes disease from one of those tiny little *#^$#$.
i heard vaseline too - works the same as the shampoo to just force them out of the skin - cause it's not breathable.
but good luck - i'm thinking i might have the same problem on luna after this weekend's romp in the country. (just pulled a dead one out of my bf's shoulder..eek!)
let us know which one works...!
i know! those ticks are crazy - esp. at this time of year when i think they're really trying to latch on to something before the freeze (at least up in the northeast). we must have pulled thirty off of luna by the end of our hike. of course she's bright white with that short hair, so it's really easy to spot them.
but i was wondering - does the advantage or revolution stuff prevent them from burrowing?
