Tick Twister

$ 11.95

It is important that tick removal in dogs and cats is done correctly to reduce the risk of more toxins being injected by the tick. Over-handling, stimulating or squeezing the tick should be avoided.

The Tick Twister is an ideal solution to remove ticks quickly, completely, painlessly and safely.

The Advantages of the Tick Twister
  • It doesn’t leave the tick’s rostrum in the skin
  • It doesn’t squeeze the tick’s abdomen
  • It removes ticks of any size
  • It removes ticks from animals and people
  • It doesn’t need any chemical products (alcohol, ether etc.)
  • It enables a quick and painless tick removal
  • It is unbreakable, hardwearing and indefinitely reusable

The tick’s rostrum (the part that is embedded in the skin and improperly referred to as “the tick’s head”) is covered with backward pointing spikes that allow the tick to “anchor” in the skin. By pulling up on the tick, the spikes will rise and lock the rostrum in the skin. The tick may break leaving body parts resting in the skin and causing a painful inflammation, or an infection.
The twisting action proved by the Tick Twister causes the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum.

How to use the Tick Twister

1. Choose the most suitable hook according to the size of the tick
2. Engage the hook by approaching the tick from the side until it is held.
3. Lift the hook very lightly and turn it - the tick detaches by itself after 2 or 3 rotations
