How to remove a tick from your dog or cat

Ticks are extremely common, annoying and sometimes dangerous parasites, and they can be expensive to remove professionally. If you live in a rural area, or take your dog for walks across fields or through forests, you may face the problem of having to extract them regularly. In this video I show how you can remove ticks easily, cheaply and painlessly from your beloved pet.

The tick featured in this video is a deer tick (Ixodes scapularis), which can transmit hydro encephalitis and Borrelia burgdorferi (Borreolosis or Lyme Disease). This type of tick is also known as the black-legged tick or bear tick. Sheep ticks (Ixodes ricinus) can be much larger.

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
