      Do any of you have/use waivers for tick removal?

      Yes we all know how to remove ticks but what if the owners come back on you for a vet bill because they think you didn't get the head or they remove one after you have and they don't get the head but cannot prove who removed the tick.

      I generally don't remove the tick. I usually just spray it with a flea/tick spray and let that do it's job. I tell the owners that I did not and do not remove them and that the tick is dead or dying and will fall off on it's own.  I explain that often times you can end up with an open wound where it was attached. I then smile, chuckle, and tell them that blood and open wounds never look good after a grooming.

      So far it's worked out well that way.





      If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.

      It is included in my general grooming waiver, but I always notify the client if I find a tick on the dog and ask them if they want it removed before the end of the groom. If they choose to keep it on for any reason, I have a wavier for denial of tick removal that way they can't say I missed the tick if the dog gets sick.
