To get rid of a smaller tick you can wedge it out ( before it burrows in) CAREFULLY but if you don't feel you will do it carefully you can get a knife, or other metal cutlery boiling hot. Boil it very hot and be careful with it. Lightly touch the tick with the edge. ( knives work well because they are pointy, and wont hurt you-your pet- around the tick. ) If it doesnt work, try the same again later.
Bigger ticks cant be wedged out, because they have gripped onto the victim, and it will hurt, so the knife thing above is the only way OR---

Take your pet to the vet if your not sure you should do it. It wont cost anything if you do it at home though, so its better if you do it at home. Get it out as soon as you realise it because they suck blood and can infect the same victim with more ticks, and other people.
