    Default Tick Scab?

    A few weeks ago I found a tick on Ruthie and I pulled it off. I have had dogs with ticks before but this one is different. I thought nothing of it when I pulled it off and it looked like the head came out. Well she has now what seems like a giant, pussy, red, crusty scab on her now. Is this normal for ticks and it's a few weeks later that this scab shows up? I just found it yesterday while petting her. I cleaned it with some peroxide and put Neosporin on it.

    I hope not either. It's really bothering her when I go to clean it.

    I would take her to the vet just to make sure it isn't something else. She may have an infection or an allergic reaction. Poor Ruthie I hope it heals up quick, please keep us posted.

    Ugh... I don't know about dogs w/tick bites, but I would take Phil's advice & take Ruthie to the vets to be sure. Keep us posted!!!

    Its an infection. They gave me some antibiotic cream and said clean it twice daily and benedryl to help with the redness/itchies. Booo hisssss. Thanks everyone for your help. They said after you pull off ticks the scab can come on up to two weeks later and take about 6 weeks to fully heal and I should expect the hair to fall out in that spot. Ill try to get a photo.

    I really hate ticks.

    Lyme is deadly. To both animals and humans.

    I've really been wracking my brain about what tick treatment to give baxter.

    I found a tick on my floor yesterday. Deer tick. Not good.

    Really frustrating that the treatments are all so segregated. Like you can do Fleas and Ticks, but you have to have another product for ringworm.

    If you really want to do it right, you probably need 3 products. Three poisons pumped into your little pup, to make their blood toxic to the nervous systems of insects. Boy that's healthy ..... :-/ .... no possible way it might actually be toxic to the dogs nervous system either riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight?

    Trifexis which does all three is pretty much poison to the dog ... sigh.
