Unfortunately we learned a lot about tick removal. The final count (we hope) is 5 ticks for Stanley and 2 for dad. We think Stanley must have brushed into a nest or something. We learned that the tick does not transmit disease right away. This system is better than burning the tick cuz with burning the tick it basically spits into the skin and transmits pathogens into the host before it dies. We sure hope the medicine we treated him with keeps him safe from disease!
Here is the method we used and it worked very well. You may have seen it on Facebook. Click HERE.
