Well its that time of year again and they are out in full force. I have a boxer just over a year old. In the last 3 days I have pulled 5 ticks off her. I have to say the little buggers are a pain. I have been pulling then off with tweezers that I heat up. I have been having trouble getting them off even after they are cooked. I was wondering if there was a better way to get them off? Also looking for any meds that would work for both? I am the only one in the house the fleas like lol. I have pulled a few off that when I went to burn them in a candle, the pop put out the flame.
