It seems like tick season is starting early this year. I found this little devil on our dog yesterday. I don't know much about ticks but this one looks to have had a meal already and there was a little bump where I removed her near Pixie's neck. Last weekend we were camping on Whidbey Island, WA, and since we've returned home we've only been on walks in the neighbourhood and Everett Crowley Park, so I'm not sure where she hitched a ride, but I'm glad I found the little wench!
Pixie is fine. She doesn't show any signs of anything different. We submitted the tick for analysis to see if it was carrying Lyme's. You can also test the dog but we didnt have the testing done. It all costs $$. Her bite location has not shown any signs of expansion or irritation either.
