Tick in dog's fur #729310

Asked October 07, 2020, 1:49 PM EDT

Wondering if this is a tick I took out of my dog's fur and if so, is there action I should take and what would that be to keep pets and people safe? He goes outside in my fenced in backyard. Thank you!

That looks like a male deer tick. 

Nexguard is effective in killing ticks on dogs.  Repellents containing DEET and permethrin are effective in keeping ticks off people.
