The part of the tick that carries disease is the body of the tick. When removing a tick the best thing to do is to take a pair of tweezers and carefully grab the tick with the tweezers. Afterwards you have to using an upwards motion pull until the tick lets go of the skin or the body of the tick has been removed from the rest of the tick. Don’t worry if the head is still inserted in the skin that part doesn’t carry disease and your body will eventually push the jaw out of your skin. Do not, however, try to burn the tick off or put anything hot near the animal. This could cause the tick to go into shock and cause it to regurgitate the contents of its body such as disease and other things the animal has pick up.
