Tick Removal Tips
I am always looking for helpful ideas to guard against ticks!!!
I have had two dogs die as a result of Lyme Disease. I think the Lyme breaks down the immune systems and if you have a weak or compromised immune system, the Lyme wins.
I am going to try the herbs you have mentioned and make a spray.
Anyway there is a homeopathic remedy Ledum, which has been used to combat Lyme Disease. I didn't have any luck with it but I'm sure if I had been educated enough, at the time on homeopathy, I would have know to consult with a professional homeopath.
I have learned through the years and with many dogs that if you "unscrew" the tick it comes out all in once piece and with really no effort. I have removed many, many ticks this way and have not been unsuccessful yet!
There is no discomfort for the dog either.
I just use a motion like I am unscrewing the tip of a screw. If you have to stop for a second it's okay just continue and after some "half turns" you can just give a little pull and "Wow", the tick comes out!!!
I then proceed to the bathroom, flush that pest, and wash my hands!
You can put some Tea Tree Ointment on the area and you will notice a scab form on the area where the tick was embedded after a couple of days.
Give it a try....I'm sure you will be successful too!!!
