THAWING PONDS; when walking your pet, keep an eye on ponds that may be starting to thaw. Keep them on a leash to be safe.
Wearing gloves and using a pair of tweezers, grab the tick as close to your pets skin as you can. Pull straight up in a swift movement, making sure not to grip too hard. Place the tick in a screw top container containing some rubbing alcohol.
Disinfect the bite site on your pet. Wash your hands thoroughly and disinfect all tools that have come in contact with the tick.
Monitor the bite site. If it is still inflamed after a week or so, bring your pet and the tick into the veterinarian for examination.
