Tick Twister Tick Remover Set
Ticks are one of the major pests that affect dogs. More importantly, if not properly handled, these ectoparasites can easily transmit bacteria, protozoa, and viruses that cause Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fevers, Q fever, and a whole lot more. Not only are these disease-causing microbes transmitted to dogs, they can also be transmitted to humans. That’s why in removing ticks from our pets, it’s best to use a gadget called Tick Twister. It’s a simple, small gadget that allows you to remove ticks safely.
The Tick Twister is shaped more like a dental scaler, except that this one comes with slightly different angled prongs that effectively get in between the dog’s skin and the tick. Come to think of it, it looks like your crowbar which you use to pull nails. This allows you to remove the tick without squeezing it or killing it, because doing so can release the pathogenic microorganisms that it harbors inside its system.
The other good thing about the Tick Twister is that it never leaves the tick’s mouthparts in the dog’s skin. When it says it removes ticks, it means it removes all of the ectoparasites. Leaving the mouthparts embedded in the dog’s skin can lead to skin irritation that can be truly uncomfortable for the dog.
The Tick Twister comes as a 2-piece set that is primarily intended for removing engorged, blood-filled ticks and smaller, emaciated ones. The device frees your hand from ever touching these parasites so you will also free yourself from the risks of the handful of diseases that ticks bring.
Pet parents and pet groomers will no longer have to worry about having to remove ticks with their hands, gloved or not. The Tick Twister easily removes these parasites while giving you optimum safety and comfort for your pet.
