I found a tick in Bogie yesterday. I know it couldn't have been there too long because it definitely wasn't there in the morning, and he was in the car for a few hours before I stopped off a a friends house. The friend then told me they were having a tick problem in her area. I pulled most of it out with a pair of tweezers, but I couldn't get it all out. We didn't have enough people to hold him down without him struggling and kicking a lot. And it seems to be in a very sensitive area (any man I know would be crying because of where it is...Luckily Bogie is neutered). I plan on taking him to the vet today to get the rest of it out, do whatever lyme test they need to do, and make sure it doesn't get infected.

Are Ticks not common in your area?

Depending on where they have been during the day my hounds come home with a couple of ticks each on them.
you just need to pull them off and if a portion is still in the skin it will work its way out. Only certain ticks carry lymes (and they are only found in certain areas)
