It’s t that time of year to check your ranch dogs for ticks. This is my second year using a product called Braveto on our BorderCcollie and Griffon, t’s a one-time dog biscuit that provides treatment for 3 months, great for dogs like mine that are in and out of the water troughs and rivers. If you’ve got to pull a tick, a nasty job, I asked a friend who is a vet, Dr. C what’s is the best method.
DVM C: Well if you have a pair of forceps or tweezers you want to part the hair around the tick so you can get good access and take the instrument and grasp the tick as close to skin as you possibly can so when you go to remove it you are getting the head and the body completely out of the skin.
Just another one of the joys of owning an active farm or ranch dog. Susan Allen with Washington Ag Today
