#Gruoch and I were having our usual bedtime games, when I felt she had a tick. It was on her neck, below her left ear.
I got the tick removal tool, the headtorch, and a treat (placed in my breast pocket).
This was the first ever tick removal procedure. It was an ordeal. As soon as I touched the affected area I had to contain a large, struggling dog. At the same time, Gruoch wanted to sniff the tick tool, and eat the treat.
Eventually, we were successful.
@fitheach Be careful. She might learn to get ticks on purpose for the sake of getting more treats. ;)
If I ever see her lying on the ground, and barking "come and get me", I'll know what she is doing.
Nope. Not only is an insecticide bad for my dog, it is also bad for me.
Manual removal is not onerous.
