Hey I just found a small tick on my dogs inner ear earlier today. Pretty sure it was a deer tick. I removed it completely, cleaned area with alcohol, and put some triple antibiotic cream on it. Dont know how long it was in there but not more than 2 days. There is a small red "bump" where he was dug in, which I would consider normal, but besides that no obvious infection or irritation etc. My question is really does anyone know how likely the tick is to be carrying lyme disease? Do I need to see a Vet asap or should I just wait to see if any symptoms pop up (showing no symptoms at all now)? Thanks to anyone with experience with this.
