Tick Twister tick remover allows the user to hold the tick without compressing it and to remove the tick by twisting motion rather than pulling. This technique is the best and safest way to remove ticks completely.
In order to minimize the risk of getting a disease, ticks should be removed as quickly as possible, without breaking the mouth-parts, without squeezing the tick’s body and without killing it beforehand. It is essential not to compress the body of the tick during removal, reducing the risk of saliva back-flow, that can lead to infections and/or allergies. Tweezers and other instruments exert a pressure on the tick. The shape of the tick remover, designed by a veterinarian, takes into account the tick’s morphology.
It is available in
- 1 pack
- 20 pack
- Removes all ticks, any size and location.
- It doesn’t leave the mouth-parts of the tick planted in the skin when used correctly.
- Does not compress the abdomen of the ticks, therefore it minimizes the risk of transmission of pathogens (Lyme disease, Tick Borne Encephalitis.).
- No chemical products needed.
- It enables a quick, easy and painless tick removal.
- Unbreakable, hardwearing and indefinitely reusable.
By pulling up on the tick, the spikes will rise and lock the mouth-parts into the skin. The tick may break and leave parts in the skin causing infection. By twisting motion, the spikes fold into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum. Tick Twister hook removes ticks by rotation and not by pulling; among all instruments supposed to use rotation, it is the easiest to use because of its shape and its size.
