Summer will be here soon and the ticks will soon be showing up. We have two dogs, a boxer and a border collie. This is great way to get rid of ticks because it works in those places where it's some times difficult to get to with tweezers - between toes, in the middle of a head full of hair. And it works great for dogs who don't like funny looking object coming at them or kids who don't like tweezers.
Just apply some liquid soap (dawn) to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a 15 to 20 seconds. The tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.
