Yes, I spent Mother's Day at the local MedExpress Urgent Care Center getting a tick removed from my son's neck! After lots of pulling and crying and comforting and screaming and hyperventilating (and that was just me!) we pulled at the tick with a pair of tweezers and promptly detached the body from the head (which was still burrowed in his neck).
Jump in the car folks, it's time to turn this over to the professionals!
This handy little tool, the Tick Twister saved the day:
Slide the tool onto the neck of the tick and twist, twist, twist ... makes for a quick and painless removal of the entire tick! Why in the world didn't we go there BEFORE all the drama? So, I'm going to Pet Smart tomorrow to purchase a few of these miracle tools for a mere $4.99. Got a tick? Click here: Tick Twister
