Tick Fever
I found 3 ticks on my 2 and a half month old Staffie pup last night. The one tick was already dead. I am so scared that she's got tick fever. She's still eating and playing. Should I take her to the vet??

No it is not necessary at this stage. Keep a close aeye on her and if she goes off her food take her to your vet. If you are concerned visit your vet anyway as they will be only too happy to put your mind at ease.
