Created in 1995 by Dr. Denis Heitz, a practicing vet working in France, Tick Twister is the solution for animals who are suffering from tick infestations. At the time Dr. Heitz made his own tool, the Tick Twister hook, from a simple metal nail.
After a number of prototypes, Dr. Heitz was able to make a version of Tick Twister that was able to safely remove a large number of ticks. The best part of the Tick Twister is that the tool can remove ticks without leaving the mouth-parts of the tick implanted in the skin and without compressing the abdomen of the tick which minimizes the transfer of infectious agents such as Lyme disease, and Babesiosis.
Flash forward to the present where the Tick Twister Hook as become the #1 Best-Seller in the "Dog Flea & Tick Control" category on Amazon US.
