Default *Tick*ed off male

WD was licking his testicles too much so I checked what was going on. A puncture wound in his scrotum and the area twice as large, so off to the Emergency Clinic.
I was prepared for the worse; an e-neuter. To my huge surprise it was a tick that had bitten through the thin skin and started an infection. The antibiotics worked right away he is going to be OK and remain whole.
So check the parts of your male dogs on a regular bases to prevent trouble like this.
D, adolescence big time
