Freezing them doesn't work as does it your bat buddies Teresa They are like cockroaches and can survive nuclear Armageddon.

At least it doesn't look like this one. This is what they look like after engorging themselves with blood. We used to find these on the Dobermans we raised when I was a kid. I haven't found one like that on Bella yet.

You mean to tell me Frontline doesn't keep them from attaching? I did not know that. She had her Lymes vaccination. The only one I found on her was prior to when I started using the Frontline.

That is correct. It supposedly kills the tick once it starts feeding. Has not been my experience with frontline, gave up on it years ago around here. Living in the hotbed of ticks they laugh at it, JMO.

I switched to K9 Advantix, but that is not working well anymore. Fiona is being treated for Lyme at the moment.

That picture of the engorged tick brought back some memories. Many, many years ago, when I had my horse in the pasture, I would pull the ticks off, (they looked just like that one), throw them on the ground, step on them and they'd pop. All the kids I rode with did that. You couldn't pay me to do that now. Ewwwwww!!!!

Same here. I grew up in the sticks with horses and dogs.

That picture makes me nauseous. I posted the most disgusting one I could find.

We brought our dog to the vet when he got a tick and they showed Ken how to remove it and they could also identify what kind of tick it was.
as far as i see there is only 1 i found on her neck, since she is still a puppy, her hair is still short, i looked throughly even behind the ears. nothing is there

Yes, head and neck are favorite spots for tick attachment. Frontline Plus helps but they can still attach. Do a through check after walks, esp in leaves.

Where I live, in early spring and late fall, it's just part of the routine unfortunately. I call Chance a tick magnet because they seem more attracted him than other dogs we walk with. I really hate those things !

Should he take the dead tick to the vet, so they can tell what kind it was, or does that matter?

My Sawyer had a tick on his head two days ago. I called the vet and they took it out for me. They said I could bring him down anytime to remove it, and by the way did not charge me. Apparently their are tonsof ticks in central NY. I will have to check Sawyer alot. He goes out in the yard and on walks and we are right next to the woods. I wonder if the cold weather kills ticks?
