- To remove ticks, dab the area with rubbing alcohol, then extract the tick slowly with tweezers. Take care not to pull too hard or pull too fast. If you have tick removers remember to twist, don't pry. If the head remains attached schedule an appointment with your vet immediately.
- Don't kill those icky critters!! Once removed put them in a sealed bag or container with a wet paper towel and bring them into the clinic. We will send them away for disease testing an NO charge to you.
- Treat the spot on your pet with alcohol or anitbacterial ointment after removal.
- Tick control products are effective but always follow the manufacturer recommendations for application.
We carry these Tick control products in-store
