HOW TO REMOVE A TICK.
Ticks are arachnids that live solely on the blood of animals—and sometimes humans. Tick bites can range from mild nuisance to serious medical condition; and while most tick bites are harmless, on rare occasions, tick bites can like Lyme disease, tick fever, relapsing fever, tularemia, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis (and even more in pets). Ticks can stay attached to their host for days, even weeks, after the initial bite. The longer a tick stays attached to you or your pet, the higher the chances are of contracting an illness or other infection. In other words, if you or your pet gets bitten by a tick, you need to remove it as soon as possible. If you suspect a tick has bitten you, here’s what you need to do:
Check For Ticks
Hiking, camping, dog-walking—any outdoor activity, especially those in or around tall grass, can leave you the host of a tick. It’s important to check both yourself and your pet for ticks after engaging in any activity that might have exposed you to these parasites. Ranging from the size of a pinhead to 2/3 of an inch, ticks can be brown or red and even white and blue-green (especially after feeding)—but in all cases, ticks can easily go unnoticed. Especially when searching your pets for ticks, it’s crucial to take your time and be thorough.
For Pets: Slowly brush your fingers through their fur, looking for any unusual bumps or lumps on or near the skin. Ticks particularly enjoy hiding in dark, warm locations, so be sure to check on and within your pet’s’ ears, between toes, under armpits, and under or near their tail.
When checking yourself for Ticks, pay close attention to these areas: armpits, ears, belly button, scalp, around the waist, back of knees, crotch, thighs, and in between toes and fingers.

Put On Gloves
As mentioned above, ticks carry various infectious diseases. When removing a tick, it’s not uncommon for the parasite to become damaged, spilling blood and other fluids in the process. To avoid having these potentially hazardous fluids seep into a crack or sore in the skin, it’s best to be cautious and always use gloves when handling or removing a tick.
There are countless myths and old wives’ tales concerning how to remove a tick—some involve burning the parasite with a match, others advocate suffocation with solutions like alcohol and even peanut butter. However, most of these tips are incorrect and, if used, can lead to additional complications like infection. Instead, follow these simple steps to properly and safely remove a tick (the process is the same for both animals and humans):
- Spray Your pet's coat with either Cedarcide Original or KG Pet Spray directly in the area of the tick to first contain it.
- If the tick as not by now fallen off by its self then the follow-on with the tweezers.
- Using pointed tweezers only, grab the tick as close to the skin surface as possible; this usually means grabbing the tick by its mouthparts.
- Slowly and carefully pull directly upward. Do not twist or yank the tick. With steady pressure, you should be able to remove the entire tick intact.
- If the tick’s mouthparts break off in the skin, attempt to carefully remove them. If this cannot be done spray again with Cedarcide Orginal or KG Pet Spray, stop trying and leave them inside. Monitor the site and consult a medical professional if you spot any signs of infection.
