Removing a tick

We are seeing more and more cases of tick borne disease with often severe consequences. Ticks can be infected with bacteria, viruses, or parasites.  Some of the most common tick-borne diseases in the United States include: Lyme disease, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.  My dog Isabelle has had both ehrlichiosis and lyme.  We basically stay out of the woods now and I have her on immune-building supplements.—Red & Howling
