How To Take a Tick Off Your Dog
In this video, Mhairi will show you how to take a tick off your dog. Ticks are very common in the summer and are often found in long grass. They carry diseases, so it’s important that if you find a tick on your dog that you know how to remove it. Quick removal lessens the risk of disease. This can be tricky, as you need to be careful not to squeeze the tick’s body, or allow its head to get stuck inside your dog. Squeezing a tick’s body can cause it to expel blood back into your dog, increasing the risk of infection.
