I read on a few tick threads from the past but none of them really focused on after care...Yesterday i found a tick on my pup Toby's neck. Me and my dad removed it by soaking it in alcohol and pulling it off with tweezers. After we got the gross thing off we cleansed the area with more alcohol and put neosporin on it. Today it's scabby and the area is red...for those of you who have dealt with tick's on your dog's and cats what do you do after it's off? Is it a good idea to keep cleansing it with alcohol everyday until it is gone or just leave it alone? I also went out and got K-9 Advantix and he is now on that so hopefully i won't have to deal with anymore gross ticks.
