Tick removal


We live in a rural area and daily trips to the vet is not an option. What is the best way to remove ticks from my dog?
Thank you,

Bob, Thanks for your question!

Frankly, I am probably no better at you than tick removal but rubbing alcohol and a good pair of tweezers should suffice! Grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible and using gentle, steady pressure pull strait back, perpendicular to the skin! DO NOT TWIST OR JERK. Once the tick is removed, clean the area with diluted soap and water. Hope that helps!
