My son just found a tick crawling on him. He said it was a dog tick and that it did not bite him because it was not attached. I checked our dog and he is fine. We went hiking yesterday, could we have brought a tick home and it latched onto the clothing of the kid that did not go on the hike? I know that ticks are bad and they can make you real sick. Rocky Mountain fever and lyme disease are mainly what I am finding. I know that fleas attach to dogs and get all over the house but what about ticks? I need a good resource on ticks and what to do.
