I did not know there were wite ticks!

I hope you will share!

The above is a picture of my dog with a white tick embedded in her back. It was so sad:(
My daughter actually found it on her and we had to get it removed. I have never removed a tick in my life. I have to be honest, I did not want to remove it either

Thank goodness for my Banfield Pet Hospital pet plan because I did not have to do it, they did for free! Yes that was a FREE plug for Banfield. I took the dog in and within 5 minutes we were out the door and it did not cost me a dime!
If my hubby would have been home, he would have removed it, but since he wasn’t I decided to take her in.
We get her vaccinated twice a year and one of those is a lime disease vaccination so I am not overly worried of her getting much of anything from this tick. Plus I walked her for an hour this morning and she seemed fine, so we are good.
My hubby did spray the yard last night with a big spray that is suppose to get rid of “all” the bugs. Well we all know what “all” really means, “not all” but if it does lessen them I will be happy!
Now I have a happy tick free dog!

Have a great day everyone!

    I love the policy you have with your vet. My husband has been with me when we found ticks. He did the procedure of removing the tick. EWWW! They are gross.

    I could find pics of them all over the internet and all I could find is that they are hard if you get them before they get to "eat." So not sure if this one was white cuz it had been there long enough or white because it was white. Who knows, either way tick suck!

    Awwww…. Poor Baby,

    I think the ticks turn white after… don't they? Not sure, but I know they don't always stay the same color as when you see them on weeds etc…

    Actually, to gross you out really bad… The tick is not white. It is filled with the blood of the dog and the body has swollen and made it that color because its skin (or what ever it has) is stretched out. It is really nasty. blech. You are so lucky to not have to deal with ticks as bad as we do here. They are awful!
