Remove Ticks with tweezers. After any walks in the woods, you should pat down your dog to see if they have picked up any ticks. Find a tick? Put on some gloves, grab some tweezers and remove it by the mouth which is closest to the skin. Put the carcass in a bowl and either burn it or let is soak in alcohol to make sure it’s dead.
Did you cut their nails too short? If you accidentally cut the nail back to the quick and you see blood, make a small paste of half flour and half cornstarch or baking powder. Apply the mix to the paw with moderate pressure. The bleeding should stop and if he/she starts licking it’s completely edible.
