This reminds me one time when my male dog atilla got lyme disease, we caught it in time though, boy that dog has done alot to make us distressed, but if the tick is small I doubt he got much bloood and you should be fine.

We've been out clearing our overgrown pasture. Every time we come in, we are all covered in what we call "seed" ticks. We have so many ticks, it looks like we have been covered in red pepper! A quick shower and careful scrub down with a washrag is the only way I have found to remove them without resorting to strong chemicals. I don't care if the chemicals kill the ticks, but I don't want to find out a few years down the road they are going to kill me, too!

No one has gotten sick - but the teeny tick bites sure itch!

Well, I'm not taking the time to read all the responses, so sorry if I say something someone already did...

I think you're WAY overreacting. For one, it was most probably a wood tick. These do NOT transmit Lyme's disease. Two, deer ticks are far less common than wood ticks.

On the left is a deer tick. These transmit Lyme's. The right is a wood tick. I had Lyme's over the summer, but I went to the doctor as soon as I noticed the bite. They gave me meds and I survived. Haha

Sorry to steal the thread but I was just wondering since its a thread on ticks... is it common for ticks to hide "up there"? I've heard it a few times and I'm scared that I'm going to miss one and get sick or something.
