Mystella Posted August 23, 2008 Share Posted August 23, 2008 (edited) I just found a tick on Stella. 12 years and this is her first one!!! Okay maybe not but definitely first one in the 9 years I have had her. At first I thought it was a mole. I have made that mistake before thinking a mole was a tick. Then I looked closer and saw a leg OMG I almost passed out. I am hugely bug phobic but this is my girl, I have to ignore that and help my baby. Don't puke, don't panic, run for GT the source of all info!!!!!! But wait I think I remember something about this tick stuff EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. I got a syringe and cooking oil, the result of that was an oily dog with a tick still embedded in her neck. Then I ran for GT, read one post which said use rubbing alcohol. Ransack house. No rubbing alcohol. Alcohol is alcohol though right, and I always have tequila New syringe, dropping tequila on the tick. Its gross little legs stop moving but he doesnt come out. @@#$#% Now I have probably killed him (or he's passed out) so I go back up to GT and read further. Okay tweezers it is. And Dh of course because it is a miracle that I haven't thrown up already So DH pulled the nasty little @#$#er out. I squirted the remainder of my tequila syringe (small amt) on the spot where it was. Now I am getting out some lime juice and putting the open bottle of Tequila to some further use. Hmm maybe I should have some breakfast first. Stell will be fine, right?????????????????????
