Little tip I got from an army guy when their dogs are deployed in afghan etc....use a chemical impregnated wipe, eg an alcohol wipe or I have used screenies fron lidel.... Gently grip the tic and rub chemical of choice into body of the tic, this causes it to withdraw its mouth parts, then gently pull....hey presto...tic removed no bits left to risk infection.

Do a google search as there's a few good videos on what a tick in the skin looks like and how to remove them properly.

not long enough
I cant find the link now but a couple of years ago saw a video where you rest your finger lightly but with slight pressure on the body of the tick and rotate in either direction like a mini 'round and round the garden' action, it is amazing tried it three times now never failed, apparently it makes the tick giddy and it retracts fully

Worth a go particularly if you are stuck with out the fork, which I must say I have never found very easy due to long fur on Lola

Tick remover just use some meth's on a bit off cotton wool even after save less chance of infection any spirit will do I have never used one of those tick removers sum one who used to be a friend tried to remove a tick Frome my dog with one of them things I ended falling out with him
just a cotton bud socked in any strong spirit will make the little buggers let go

We were given some advice by a kind German which works well, cover the tick with some Vaseline for two or three minutes, they can't breath, and naturally start to withdraw. Once they are reasonably visible use a tissue to get a grip, gently turn and pull. Normally ensures that they come out without to much problem. The other tip is to do the same with nail varnish, again stops them breathing

Does any kind of alcohol work, vodka, wine etc or does it have to be rubbing alcohol which I read about often and never find in shops.

Should NOT do this! It can cause them to throw up before retracting and that is where most of the nasties are! :xsmile:
