Is this a bed bug or tick?!?! Either way I am pretty freaked out. We went hiking in the woods last Sunday with the dogs. When we left, we noticed that the 2 dogs had literally about 20 ticks each, I had a few on me, my three year old also had one on him. I of course got all the ticks off of everyone including dogs. I called the vet to see if I could get anything else for tick prevention. They are on the pill for fleas. Well yesterday I found another 6 ticks on my one dog and again another 2 today. I just found this crawling on me sitting on my recliner (and yes dogs do get on the furniture

I heard it will be a bad year for ticks. I've already found a few myself.

Hi,


looks like a dogwood tick to me! I would vuccum everything and maybe even get the tick and bug spray. We have one dog he a big ball of fur and he sheds four times a yrs (Norwegian elk hound) so he doesn't get tick bad from the back yard but if we take him for hikes. I will also find one or two on him. He on flea and tick meds as well.
