let me tell you the procedure in detail
- wear disposable gloves
- with the help of tweezers hold the tick from its head which would be buried in the skin so try to dig in as much as possible then simply pull the tick away
- if during the process the head of the tick is broken and is separated from its body then try to pull off the head again in the second try and put some antibacterial medicine on the wound i always use iodine it works fine .
- once you are done with the procedure remove and discard your gloves and properly sterilize the tweezers .
- you can avoid your dog from having ticks by not letting him roam about in long grass or bushy areas specially in summers and rainy seasons check your dog frequently for tics and if u find any remove them there and then don't wait for them to grow because when the tick is removed before it becomes engorged with blood, there is very little chance of it transmitting Lyme disease .
