Tick Twister


The best and safest way to remove ticks without leaving the mouthparts
of the tick planted in the skin.
No use of chemicals.
Quick and painless without squeezing the tick, thus reducing the risk
of infection. Two sizes supplied in each pack.
INSTRUCTIONS:
Do not pull on the Tick, but ROTATE until it detaches.



We use this tool for our dogs if Frontline doesn't catch them all! Much more effective than a standard tick tool or tweezers.



The official website for the product has a handy demo video and lots of extra info



Why use the O'TOM / TICK TWISTER® to remove ticks?



- It doesn't leave the tick's rostrum in the skin



- It doesn't squeeze the tick's abdomen


- It removes ticks of any size



- It removes ticks from animals and people



- It doesn't need any chemical products (alcohol, ether,...)



- It enables a quick and painless tick removal



- It is unbreakable, hardwearing and indefinitely reusable



The O'TOM / TICK TWISTER® doesn't leave the tick's mouthparts



The tick's rostrum (the part that is embedded in the skin and improperly referred to as "the tick's head") is covered with backward pointing spikes that allow the tick to "anchor" in the skin.



By pulling up on the tick, the spikes will rise and lock the rostrum in the skin. The tick may break leaving body parts resting in the skin and causing a painful inflammation, or an







infection.



By twisting, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum.



The O'TOM / TICK TWISTER®doesn't squeeze the tick's abdomen



While removing a tick, it is essential not to compress it, reducing the risk of saliva back-flow. A tick's saliva contains irritating substances and sometimes microorganisms that can lead to







infections and/or allergies.



Tweezers and other instruments exert a pressure on the tick.
