Ticks are an unfortunate reality around here and the viruses they carry pose a serious threat to ourselves and our four-legged companions. Fortunately, ticks hate the taste of rubbing alcohol almost as much they love the taste of your dog. Next time you find a tick on your pup, dab it with rubbing alcohol to make it loosen its grip. Once it has been removed, dab again with the alcohol to disinfect the wound and keep an eye on it for the next couple days just to be sure it doesn’t turn into something more serious.
