The best tick preventive plan any pet owner can practice is to regular inspect your pet's body.
All pest repellents (both chemical and natural) are only deterrents and your pet will still get bugged by bugs on occasion. Certainly, keeping your pet clean with frequent baths and brushing is part of a regular examination program.
Removing most of the pests you occasionally find on your dog or cat is not a big issue except for one...ticks. Ticks bore into your pet’s skin using backward-pointing spikes that can make safely removing them difficult.
The Tick Stick is one of the few tools found that allows you to actually hold the tick (without compressing it) and remove it by using a twisting, rather than a pulling motion.
The twisting motion allowed by the Tick Stick takes advantage of the tick’s rostrum structure. As you twist, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, making it easier to remove the tick—so you can safely and easily remove ticks.
1. Choose the most appropriate hook, according to the size of the tick.
2. Engage the hook by approaching the tick from the side until it is held.
3. Lift the hook very lightly and twist it until the tick detaches by itself.
