If your dog does get a tick the best way to kill it off is dip a cotton bud in to the mrs nail varnish soak on to tick it becomes hard in no time ..! The tick can't feed it drops of in days..!

Ours goes potty when he smells nail varnish (or anything chemical with strong smell) runs round the room, sneezing and wiping his face and nose on everything. I think it quite irritates his nose

I can just imagine trying to grab him while painting his nether regions.

Is an particular colour more effective? ruby red, shocking pink???? or just colour co ordinate it with the hound

Then leave it there for a few days until it drops off.........

We end up with my missus at the sharp end with the dog in a head lock, me at the brown end with his tail in one hand & the tick spanner in the other, trying to unwind this big fecker off the dogs arse'ole, life don't get any better does it Finally got it off & trod on it, it popped like a grape & blood every where, b'stards they are.
You're sure he hasn't got (had) piles?

We all I can say is you lot don't have very well behaved dogs if they don't stand still.
Trying to remove the ticks can cause infection if you leave the head in,

Which is exactly why I treat him with frontline, kills the ticks and they drop off, or I get them with the tick puller when he is calm, and relaxed, and not when I am making him run around with his nose feeling like it is burning from the inside!

Also I think it has already been said, but painting stuff on ticks makes them regurgitate all the nasty bugs and viruses they have in them into the dog, which causes diseases.

For me, Frontline everytime, and remove them whenever I see them.

All I can say is if your dog is happy to sit sniffing strong chemical smells, it either has no sense of smell, or it needs to go to rehab
