Ticks





I have noticed these disagreeable bloodsuckers only on the heads and

bodies of sporting or Collie dogs, who had been boring for some time

through coverts and thickets. They soon make themselves visible, as

the body swells up with the blood they suck until they resemble small

soft warts about as big as a pea. They belong to the natural family,

Ixodiadae.



Treatment--If not very numerous they should be cut off, and the part

touched with a little turps. The sulphuret of calcium will also kill

them, so will the more dangerous white precipitate, or even a strong

solution of carbolic acid, which must be used sparingly, however.
