How to Remove Dog Ticks (or cat, or human for that matter)

Tuesday, 27 November 2012  |  Kate

We've been asked to stock tick removers for dogs in the My Itchy Dog shop for a while now. We wanted to make sure we got the best tick remover for the job. Well I found the best a few months ago, it's called the O'Tom Tick Twister and now it has a silicone grip it's even easier to use.

How Remove Dog Tick Remover Ticks DogsI've added them to my site with free postage as they're so small I'm happy to suck up the cost to keep the price down (no tick puns intended!)

I tried both types of tick remover, with the silicone grip and without, and by far and away the easiest to use is the tick twister with the new silicone grip. Tick Twisters come in a pack of two, in different sizes. Use them on any animal, including yourself. I keep one in the glove box of the car and another in the house.

So that's what I've added to the shop and will be stocking from now on. The O'Tom tick twister is an essential part of the first aid kit when the tick season gets underway. Keep one about your person on a walk, because you never know when you're going to need one.
