A tick will look like a huge butter bean(to me anyway)LOL because it is engorged with blood, and you can see small tiny legs. Try to remove it carefully with a pair of tweezers and make sure you remove the head as well, but I have never had a problem with that.

Ticks Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball Cover the tick with the soap soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20) The tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away
I have never tried this, but it is worth a try Good Luck
Glad to hear kiba is ok. I would've just tooken it off. When a dog at the animal shelter had a tick they took it off and then lit it with a match until you could hear the head pop assuring that it was dead. i'm not sure if that's right but i'm pretty sure that was what they did.
