Found a tick with it's head burrowed into my Sammy-Doodle's chest last night... gross!

Neighbor who is in vet school pulled it out for us and told us to just put a little Neosporin on it. It was a dog tick and wasn't bloated yet so we caught it pretty quickly I guess.

Anything else we should do except watch the spot where it was and how Sam is feeling and run out to get some Frontline?

Sounds like you've got it covered. Remember to check Sammy over carefully each day as Frontline doesn't repel the ticks and it takes 48 hours for it to even become effective.

But I have to say that I find very few ticks on Remy and I haven't found any attached since using frontline.
