Tick Twister - For tick removal on animals and people
Introduced to the twister late one night at a 24 hr emergency vet centre when we couldn't remove a paralysis tick from our 12 week old spoodle pup's arm pit. Highly recommended to dog owners, a quick, easy and well designed tool to have on hand. Extremely well priced at Vet N Med.
easy to use
Anyone who has to deal with ticks should have one of these. It's so easy to hook under the tick & twist it out, plus my kitty hardly notices.
These are very easy to use and so small and lightweight that they should be in everyone's first aid and hiking kits. I now have them in my glove box and wildlife rescue kit as well. I don't know if they come in different colours but fluro yellow or pink would make them easier to find when you put them down while in the bush.
While visiting family on the N. Coast NSW, I felt the familar burning sensation that meant a tick had me in its grip--a nasty shell back. I asked my niece for tweezers and she handed me a tick twister. Following the instructions on the package I inserted the twister under the tick locking it into the vee shaped blade. One quick twist and out it came, head and all ready for a quick disposal. For some one who grew up in tick country, this was the easiest tick removal I've ever done.
