When you're removing a tick, you need to prioritize removing it in one piece. If you are careless, the mouth of the tick might stay in your dog's skin causing discomfort.
We suggest using a pair of tweezers to grasp the tick. When first grasping the tick bring the tweezers as close to your dog's skin as possible. When you are ready to extract the parasite apply slow and even upward pressure.
Once you have removed the tick, you need to make sure it won't latch back onto your dog or latch onto you. We recommend you prep a container of alcohol or soapy water before extracting the tick so that you can submerge the parasite once you have pulled it off. The tick will drown and you won't have to worry about it coming back for seconds.
