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

Okay, so they were shinier. Put them in an ashtray or something you feel comfortable burning, and burn those bitches.

It's a tick.

Although, I'm kinda confused on how you don't know what it is, when you removed over 20 ticks yesterday.


It was Sunday and and the ones I pulled off my dogs were covered in vaseoline to suffocate them

Tick for sure!!! Get preventic collars for the dogs, they have them at 100petmeds.com BEST tick prevention ever! The drops don't do ANYTHING for my dog, but this collar works wonders! Make sure you watch yourself and your 3 year old for lyme! We live literally IN the woods, in PA, so ticks are a huge problem for us!

I swear the crawling live one seemed different lol. I didn't think they could survive without a host. I flushed them btw

ticks drink as much blood as they can then fall off the host and crawl away

Tick. They are horrible this year! Just keep an eye out for the bullseye rash. That's the sign of Lyme disease.

I can imagine. I've had that happen to me as well. Knew what it was but it didn't seem right to be that for some reason. Flushing them works too I guess. They don't die though. I prefer those little buggers to die. I'm a little weird like that. I like to see them burn. I can't stand to see anything else in pain though. I know, like I said, I'm weird.
