While bathing our 4 year old female shitz zu this morning I discovered an insect inbedded on the top of heard head. It is not a tick. There is a small lump underneath the surface of her scalp, the insect legs are on the surface of her skin with the grey colored oblong body of the bug protruding. I poured some alcohol onto the site. Should I attempt to remove the bug or does this require a visit to the vet. Is there a possibility of any long term effects or illness??
I have no ides what this is and I recommend a visit to the vet. It sounds like a tick to me??? Vetcare
