Ottawa Public Health says more than 20% of the ticks the city analyzed last year tested positive for Lyme disease.
A friend posted a video of him removing a tick from his dog using the tool below. I would have shared it, but his fb settings didn’t allow it. (Good on Facebook, I guess…)
Anyway, this video does a better job of showing how to use the little tool. I just wanted to indirectly vouch for it – this thing actually works.
Here’s another real life example of tick removal.
I’m weirdly fascinated by this. Although I still hope I don’t end up needing to using one.
