Tick Disposal

There are numerous ways in which to ensure that your pet is tick free, one of the ways where pet assistance is needed is to check his fur daily. This is an easy inspection as ticks are rather bulbous and easily spotted. When found it is common believe that the ticks should be burned out, but the animals seem to scare easily when a flame approaches them. Thus taking a tweezer and plucking the tick out is another option. Even if the head remains in the body, the tick dies and eventually falls out. To dispose of the body, dead or alive, either burn it, flush it or crush it.
