Two

Remove the tick by rotating the tool and using a slight, upward motion. Always check to ensure you haven't broken the tick and left its mouth parts embedded in your dog's skin where it could cause an infection.

Three

If you can't remove a tick contact your vet for advice.

NEVER

Try to burn a tick out with a cigarette.
