The safe and effective tick remover! Simple and easy to use, it gets rid of crawling or attached ticks fast. For use on animals and people. And you'll never have to touch the tick. Ideal for pet lovers, groomers, sportsmen, etc.
The most important action for you to do, is to get the tick off as soon as possible. Laboratory research (Needham, G.R. 1985. Evaluation of five popular methods for tick removal. Pediatrics 75:997-1002) has proven that traditional or folk methods, such as using a hot match, petroleum jelly, fingernail polish, or alcohol, do not cause an attached tick to back out of the skin, without major consequences. These methods may actually increase your risk for infection that may lead to hospitalization or death of people or their pets. Using those methods or by squeezing the tick, even just a little, the tick activates its defenses and may regurgitate fluid back into the host (your child, pet, etc.). Caution should be exercised when removing a tick, since the potential for contamination of both the host and the person removing the tick can be significant. Remember, our animal friends as well as our children need our help in properly removing ticks, as they can't do it for themselves.
TICKED OFF™ is the only single-motion tick remover designed to help you remove ticks in a timely and effective manner, with your safety in mind. This simple-to-use tool is easy to hold and has been tested and proven in removing ticks from animals and people.
Proper UseMay be used in any direction, front, back or side, to remove ticks.
Once the tick has been isolated, is clearly visible and free from obstruction, holding TICKED OFF™ vertically, place the wide part of the notch on the skin near the tick. Applying slight pressure downward on the skin, slide the remover forward so the small part of the notch is framing the tick (see picture). Continuous forward sliding motion of the remover detaches the tick.
Remember when you last scooped hard ice cream from a bucket, it's more like drawing the scoop across the top. Using TICKED OFF™ is the very same action, drawing the remover across the skin.
