Adventures in Vet Techin'

12 notes

Two dogs came in who were boarded at a place that had such a serious tick problem that their topical tick preventative didn’t do a dang thing for them — they were literally covered in ticks… So the vet had the assistants bath each with a medicated tick shampoo, apply another dose of K9 Advantix, and manually remove as many ticks as possible. What you see in the picture are the ticks left after they spent 3 hours pulling 1000+ ticks off the dogs. *shudder*
