    Thanks for the replies, it was a tick.
    I removed it but was wondering if you could tell if the head was still attached to the tick and if i should take my dog to the vets?

    Hard to tell, but it does look complete.

    Just keep an eye on the spot where it was removed. A little swelling and/or hardness can occur and last a day or so.

    Personally, i wouldnt worry, and i wouldnt even contemplate a vet visit.
