We use Advantix prevention and it seems to work pretty well for the most part. Haven't found any ticks after our outside play. Well, in the normal tick places anyway...

Anybody have any ideas on removing a tick from the back of his tongue?! I have never even oh my god.

Wow, that's nuts. I would probably ask a vet to get it out just to avoid any damage if he freaks out while trying to remove it.

Never had a tick there. I'd let a vet take care of it to make sure the entire tick gets removed and there isn't any swelling.

I got him relaxing on the couch with me and was able to get it with some tweezers. He was half asleep tho or he would have fought me.

Great job. I give you lots of credit for even trying it. I would be afraid I'd stab them with the tweezers or something.
