Is this a flea*?

Sorry yeah, I meant FLEA* idk why I wrote tick. The google images search definitely looked like a tick so I just wanted to confirm. Anything I need to be worried about now? Never had this issue

We do not normally have fleas where I live but recently I got a Standard Poodle, long coat, badly matted and she came from the Coast where fleas are a problem. When I got her clipped and bathed, it turned out she had fleas. Within a short period of time, one of my dogs passed some tapeworm so I have had to worm all my dogs for tapeworm. Have not noticed any fleas on my other dogs nor any fleas around at all. They get the tapeworm by eating the fleas so would be a good idea to get your dog checked for the tapeworm even if you are not "overrun" with fleas.
