that's pretty cool. Karma had her first tick a few days ago and it was on her lower eye lid. I remembered this trick but no way to circle the tick so I used my old tried and true method. I have a (sp) hemostat (like tweezers but for surgery and they lock into place when squeezed) I grab the end of the tick and pull before it has a chance to grab on tight. This has worked every time without leaving the head still attached but it is a bit painful to the dog. Karma jumped when I did it but no more bug in the eye.

I tried it but it didn't work - Griff had one on his erm... wink - trying to get a tick off that way -- well... he thought I was his new best friend! :doh:
I can't believe he didn't pull it off himself being it was in that particular place!
