Tick Twister 2 pack For Dogs, Cats, Horses, Humans Etc.

 

Ticks are blood-sucking parasites which feed on all manner of wildlife, livestock, domestic pets, and humans. They are responsible for the transmission of more cases of human disease than any other arthropod vectors in North America and Europe. Cases of Borreliosis (Lyme Disease) have more than doubled in England and Wales since 2001, and have trebled in Scotland.

 

Various factors, such as changes in land management and the climate, have resulted in an increase in the tick population. As more people become involved in outdoor activities, and as urban sprawl brings people into close proximity with rural habitat and urban wildlife, more cases of tick-borne diseases will continue to occur.

 

With the exception of the Louping-ill virus, there are no vaccines to defend against tick-morne infections in the UK. The only defence is through bite prevention and correct tick-removal techniques.

 

  • Two sizes provided
  • Use these tick remover tools for safe and easy removal of ticks from all animals or humans.
  • Choose the right size hook for the size of the tick.
  • Sold in hundreds of veterinary surgeries nationwide.
  • Hook on to tick and twist to remove ticks easily.
  • Supplied in a resealable bag. An essential item for pet owners.

 

Cautions:

Your main aim is to remove the tick promptly and remove all parts of the tick’s body.

 

  1. Start by cleansing the tweezers/tool with antiseptic.
  2. After tick removal, clean the bite area and the tick removal tool with antiseptic.
  3. Wash hands thoroughly afterwards.
  4. Save the tick in a container in case a doctor/VET asks for evidence (label it with date and location).

 

  • DO NOT squeeze the body of the tick, this may cause the head and body to separate, leaving the head embedded in your skin.
  • DO NOT use your fingernails to remove a tick. Infection can enter via any breaks in your skin, e.g. close to the fingernail.
  • DO NOT crush the tick’s body, this may cause it to regurgitate its infected stomach contents into the bite wound.
  • DO NOT try to burn the tick off, apply petroleum jelly, nail polish or any other chemical. Any of these methods can cause discomfort to the tick, resulting in regurgitation, or saliva release.
