How does the Tick Twister Work?

Simply slide The Tick Twister's wedge shaped hooks either side of the offending tick. This gently clears the external body parts and applies pressure to the tick's head at the point of contact. Gently twist & lightly lift the hook, the combined effect loosens the grip of the spikes of the rostrum.

How to Remove Ticks? 

The unanimous opinion of Vets & Doctors alike is that ticks should be removed entirely, including the rostrum (often refered  to as the tick's head). The tick's rostrum has backwards facing hooks which anchor the tick into skin tissue. Agitating the parasite will lead to the tick's head locking on more making it harder to remove & making removal more difficult while managing your pet squirming.

Why not tweezers?

Tweezers don't allow for an immediate grip of the parasite and securing your pets paws & face and trying to separate their fur while they're squirming just prolongs the process.

Once you manage to restrain your pet & get a grip of the tick’s head you have to ensure you have grip applied to the right place! Avoid squeezing the body and abdomen of the tick. Doing so can force saliva into the skin which can lead to irritation.  Only tearing the tick’s body away will increase the risk of inflammation,  infection to the wound or of Lyme’s disease being transmitted.
