Tick Head Left in Dog?

Answer

If a tick head is left in a dog, first clean around the tick head with rubbing alcohol to prevent infection. Apply triple antibiotic ointment as well. The rest will be done by the dog. The dog's body will form a hard layer of skin around the tick head and eventually the tick head will fall off as the dog loses skin.
