I know it’s winter, but for some of us in warmer climates, it’s always tick season. I hadn’t seen many ticks in my life, and had never removed one from anybody or any animal prior to a few months ago. But when my dog, Spud had a tick on him, I had to find a good way to remove it. I used the method below and got the tick out in tact and without even making Spud flinch. Now, it could be harder or easier for you to do it. This seems to be the way that most places online say to remove them. Good luck!
