Well then, sorry for assuming you were joking. Where I live, ticks are very common. You have to buy flea and tick medicine and apply it to your dog.
That should keep the ticks from biting. Here is a picture of a full tick like
you pulled off your dog, and one before it is full of blood. Try to avoid them if you see them. There are different kinds of ticks, not sure what
kind live where you do, but some can make you sick.
yep, thats it! the big one in the middle.
its embarrassing to say the least, I even had nightmare yesterday dreamt disgusting worms and insects in my room crawling. And today when they moved I
thought some weird organics were developed....wooo....sorry OP for the interrupt.
I'd definately say so, the mechanic ticks withdraw their tiny legs back into their fat body looks exactly like a mini machine, only difference is it
runs on blood for fue, I am having a thought of crushing one to see if there'd be blood, but really now I kinda regret squeezed these tumors with my
hands, they felt like skin to me.
Thanks, knowledgedesired, I will double check raccoon ear to see if there is any head left inside her skin. The ticks put into plastic bags are still
moving, they look round balls with only legs. I'll take raccoon to vets tomorow for a check. by any standards, they should be large size ticks,
You need to make sure the ticks do not crawl off your dog and start nesting in the walls. At Wal Mart I usually find a medicine to give to my dog
which kills ticks once they drink the dog's blood. This medicine is called Petarmor Plus. There is probably something similar sold in your city.
Ticks can carry heart worms and other parasites which could kill your dog.
Good advice, groingrinder. I wiped entire room with walext and cleared up wooden floor cracks today.
Doctor prescribed Drontal Plus and Advantix®, they refer insects as Dermacentor nuttalli, both bugs are still alive with no heads remain in
raccoon's skin. No other bugs found, they recommend burning these bugs. Center for Disease Control and Prevention identified them as non fatal
infectious disease carrier type. Bought sterilizing spray and antiseptc liquid just in case.
Thanks again everyone !
