Thanks a lot for the info. I have an update post in a few.You need to get her in the goat stand for sure! Ticks heads burrow in deep! You don’t need to buy fancy appliance for it. Got some gasoline on it and typically it smothers them and they back out. If they doesn’t happen..you’ll need to be very careful to get as close to the head as you can, and then...gently pull..without breaking off the head. If the head breaks off..9times out of 10 it’s no big deal, and The body will dispe it. But, sometimes it can become infected...just like a normal cut on a person. So, in this area..I’d be careful. But, it looks pretty normal to me...hope it’s nothing!!
Yeah Vaseline works great for us..this area is infested with deer ticks...but the best thing ever...ducks! Since we’ve had ducks..not one tick! . And they sooo much fun!Just an anal dimple with poo, I think....phew that's a relief!
Tick extractors are ready available on line and consist of a little wire loop which you place over the bloated body (around the leg and head parts) and then gently twist, making sure to get out the mouthparts. Otherwise smothering them with petroleum jelly is said t work. Thankfully you don't have to go down that road.
no I was cleaning with a Q-tip and I could see that it’s not a hole, only like a deep dimple which seems like I need to clean every once in a while. This is the first time I notice it.I’d say it’s fine as long as she’s not bothered by it. Is it an actual hole..or just a dimple?
