Default My new 6 weeks old puppy has ticks..

I need help,my new baby had alot of small ticks on him which i removed,but i fear i may have left some out and they may lay eggs and come back...other than this he has 1 tick each in his ears,i tried removing it with tweezers but no success...i have to take him to the vet tomorrow evening for his first shots,so should i wait for the vet to remove it..should i clean him with a wet towel having disinfectant or what as its night time here ?

Just make sure that you got all the ticks on him (except for the two in his ears). A female tick lays gobs of eggs! I had a tick infested house after my darling twin brother took my Irish Setter for a swim at midnight behind the museum of science and industry in Hyde Park! It took me 3 years to finally get them out of the house. They would lay their eggs behind the baseboards---to hatch later after the exterminators warranty had lapsed. I finally lied and told them I saw a tick, and they came out right away and treated the house again, and that finally did it.
Make sure you wash his bedding in hot water to kill any left over ticks!
Maybe you could use a flea comb and get any left over ticks?

Try removing every single flea/tick you can. I personally never had a puppy with fleas/ ticks that young. But I personally like using a lemon/lime and just rub it against their skin. And it seems like it helps for them to "appear" You might not feel comfortable rubbing the pup with lemon. But just keep searching him.

Don't do multi shots! You wont be able to determine what he is allergic too. Do individual shots and wait 3 weeks in between. That way you do not stress his immune system and you can determine any reactions.
