Ick, I hate ticks, thankfully don't live where they are thick, like the midwest. Even so, just pulled a nasty big one out of my dog today, and right next to it a little unattached one. Made me wonder if dogs are susceptible to any tick borne diseases.

Noted. Thx, Giana. Useful info, even if terrifying. By the way, cats and dogs are susceptible to tick-borne illnesses, according to our vet.
