removing deer ticks
By timatworkhomeandinbetween on Jul 07, 2005
The grass in the park is long and full of deer ticks I have removed three from Finn's face today, it must be the only place his fur is thin enough for them to find skin. I bought a packs of "tick twister" little plastic hooks with a split in the end like a claw hammer, you get the tick in the split and then rotate the hook around the tick until it releases. A fabulous little device and the packet refers to www.otom.com.
Finn's been to the Vets three times this week. First to have a microchip fitted, second time a few days later to see if was still there as I found it poking out his skin, and the third to have a replacement fitted
It's been a big Samoyed spotting few weeks, we saw two at the Farnham Carnival and on the way into the vets for the third time we met another..
