Our Advice:

Thank you for your email. You can remove the tick using a special tick removal, which removes the tick by twisting rather than pulling (pulling may results in the tick’s mouth parts breaking off and being left in your dog). Your vet may sell these, or may be able to remove the tick for you. If you’re having problems with ticks there are some flea treatments which also kill ticks – please ask your vet for advice.
