How to get a tick off of my dog?

I can normally get a tick off of my dog pretty easily, but this time i pulled off just the back. I can see that about half of the body is deep in her skin and its hard to get it to move. Tips on how to loosen the tick?

It looks like you’ll need to speak to a vet

In the future, speak to your vet about putting Revolution for your doc (it will be protected from fleas, ticks, and several other parasites). You can also order it off of 1800petmeds.

Any parts that stay behind willl cause a horrible infection. Call your vet for advice (even once you get everything out, you need to disinfect the area).

    At the Pet stores they have special plastic tools for that. It works pretty good.
