    Is this a tick?

    This was taken from a friends dog. Can anyone confirm that it is a tick please.

    Dog ticks are different from deer ticks;

    A bit like dog fleas, cat and rabbit fleas which are also all different. Doesn't mean to say they won't all suck yer blood though!

    For the purposes of the UK, I am sure we are talking about the same ticks that are on our dogs and deer.

    There's a lot of different species of ticks in the UK mate. There's even a brown dog tick which is most common in Southern England. I see the originator of this thread is in Somerset.

    I regularly see different ticks on the same deer.
