Well I don't know what it was but something worked!!

First put some liquid soap on the tick and left for an hour but it still wouldn't come off, then smothered in Vaseline on the advise of the local pet shop and also put some lavender oil drops on the back of his neck and tail. Because it was so close to his eye Hugo wasn't very keen when we approached him with tweezers - pleased to say absolutely no aggression when we pinned him down but VERY STRONG!

We went out for a walk and I didn't look for a couple of hours but when I did it had gone!!

Thanks everyone for all your help - trouble is we need to get another tick to find out what it was that worked!

But our special 'Akita Ticks' are free range, organic, and hand reared in sustainable woodlands.

Right now we have a special offer, buy one get six free with next day delivery.

Sure you're not tempted?

They also make attractive ear-rings, just paint them the colour of your choice and attach them to your earlobe. Always an interesting conversation piece at a party and a very original gift for that person you really don't like very much !

You'd never guess I used to be in Marketing.

A vet advised me to use the vasaline method, she said that ticks breath through their skin and the vasaline stops them breathing it woked on my old Benny

Those earings sound verrrrrry interesting I wonder if they'll match my knotted tape worm necklace
