A friend on a yahoo group I belong to (Canine Cancer Prevention) shared this with us. A nurse discovered this safe, easy way to remove ticks. It works in places where it’s difficult to get to with tweezers. It also works well on dark fur or dark hair.
Instructions: Apply a few drops of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for 15-20 seconds. The tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.
So simple and it works!
