Up close and personal with a tick!

Yesterday during lunch hour I was working in the office and heard a somewhat distressed plea from Michelle for some help.  I found her in the lunch room holding her head.  She said she thought she had felt something and suspected a tick.  On close examination after she removed her hands, sure enough, I found a small tick trying to make its get away!

Michelle walks her 2 dogs virtually every day in the hills above Valleyview and in the last couple of months has found and removed 8 ticks in total from them and herself personally.  Michelle is diligent about going over both her dogs and herself when she gets back from her walks but they are small and fast and can be easily missed.   All the more reason to protect your dog with Nexgard which will kill any tick that jumps on for a ride and a meal!
