I would try to get it off her with tweezers, pulling straight up. Make sure to wear gloves and also make sure not to leave any parts of the tick in your dog. Clean the tweezers afterward with rubbing alcohol.
This sucker was in good, prob engourged to twice his size, could not pull it out. Will talk with the vet tonight.I'm so used to it now! I just take them off by the head with my thumb and pointer finger and then pop them with my nails. They make a pleasant pop when set on fire too (OFF the dog of course!)
Thanks Tanyac i saw something like this online last night, will be buying two to keep around the house and truck.I purchased a plastic tick remover from my vets some time ago It is brilliant and gets the ticks right out, heads and all! Best thing is it's really cheap. I have it on hand at all times now... just in case!
Here's a link for it, don't know if you can buy similar in the US/Canada?
