This article was in a dog mag so thought i would pass it on for dogs and people

This is great because it works in those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc."



"Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.




This technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me.."




"Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this method and immediately called me back to say, "It worked!"




Please pass on. Everyone needs this helpful hint.”

Michele, I don't get ticks here but that is a wonderful bit of info. I had never heard it before.
