I'm dog sitting since Tuesday for my Dad's dog Daisy. She had just had two ticks removed from her tummy before Tuesday, and she had medicine on the back of her neck also for the ticks.
Yesterday or the day before, I noticed a bump on her mouth, and I looked at it and it looked like the growths that our Artemis always got, so I texted Dad saying that Daisy got one of Artemis's "barnicles" (that's what I call them).
But today Daisy and I were laying on the couch and I saw something on the couch by us. It was this big fat tick! I looked at her lip and the "barnacle" was gone, but there was a bump and a scab! The bump was the tick!
I found three other ticks on her just now! But I have never seen ticks like this before. They are fat and squishy! What the heck? What do I do??
I pulled them out according to this site: http://kidshealth.org/parent/general/body/tick_removal.html
I pulled them out with tweezers as best I could. I put them in a baggie of alcohol and put alcohol on the spots on Daisy where the ticks were. I'm worried though! For the first tick I pulled out, the squishy tick seemed to deflate when I squeezed it! I'm afraid that it sucked juice out of Daisy but then spit it back into her when I squeezed it!
I'M FREAKED OUT AND NOW I HAVE THE CREEPY CRAWLIES!
Any suggestions? Should I call the emergency vet or will Daisy be ok until tomorrow morning to then go to the regular vet?
