I am sorry to hear Tia has a tick. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

This product, Flea Halt, is designed to use on dogs for fleas and ticks. If you used it as directed, it should kill the tick.

Let me know if you have other questions I can answer, and how Tia is doing. Rebecca

To kill the Tick.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.

Is the tick still attached? If so, I would remove it with tweezers. It will die soon, if you applied the tick product.

Did you get the tick off?

Let me know how Tia is doing. Kindly consider rating my answer (always appreciated!); you can still get back to me with questions and updates after rating.
