when i was a kid with our 2 mutts we never worried about ticks. half the summer's fun was seeing who could pick off the biggest gray dog tick off our dogs. now that i've actually paid for a dog and invested time and money into it i am of course worried about every little thing. like my dad said the minute you pay for a dog the more trips to the vet you'll take.
anyway pulled one off the 15 month CLM today im assuming it latched during training in thick cover saturday. it was tiny about the size of a ball point pen tip. do i take him to the vet now for blood work? wait it out? seemed like most everything i researched said symptoms usually take 2-3 weeks or more to show up?
we usually do frontline during tick season but just hadnt got around to it since winter is over plus water work every 2-3 days. i am of course going to go buy some tomorrow now just curious best course of action.
