I am sorry you found a tick on Cleo. We had a Boxer named Cleo when I was growing up!

If you removed the tick that should be all you have to do. There may be a bump at the site for up to a week or so, from the bite but that is normal.

I would consider using a product for ticks on her; if she got one tick there could be more. Bravecto lasts for 3 months against ticks; Frontline and the Seresto collar are also good.

Ticks can carry disease. If in the next few days to a week she limps, acts painful, won't eat, or has a fever, I would contact your veterinarian.

Please let me know what other questions I can answer and if this was helpful!
