My daughter's cat has a tick, she removed the body, will the head cause any serious damage?

remove the head
 
Hi,

Why don't you remove the head as well?

one sure way to get rid of the tick
 
I worked at an animal clinic part time for 3 years, and what we always used to remove a tick was alcohol. Rubbing alcohol, to be more specific. Just soak some into a cotton ball and hold it on the cat's ear for 30 seconds or so. Even if you have removed the tick's head already, it's still a good idea to clean the sore... Laura
