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.
