How to Remove a Tick Head from a Dog or Cat

Why Is It Important to Remove a Tick?

Ticks are parasitic insects that feed on warm-blooded animals, like humans or some pets. With the help of mouth parts, they attach themselves to their host’s skin and stay there until it is removed. They have a tight grip which makes it difficult to remove them from the host’s skin. Although their bites are usually harmless, they serve as carriers for some infections and diseases, such as Lyme disease [1].

It is important to remove ticks from your pet’s skin as soon as possible to prevent any health complications. In most cases, the tick usually stays attached to the top of your skin even after removing other parts. It is important to learn how to remove every part of the tick from your pet’s body safely.
