[New Product] TickSee Tick Removal Kit

TickSee Tick Removal Kit

Ticks aren’t just creepy. They pose a serious health threat to both people and pets. These little bloodsuckers carry serious diseases and their stealthy approach to getting under your skin allows them to often go unnoticed until the damage is done. What’s worse is that you can actually increase the danger of infection with improper tick removal. A common reaction to finding a tick on yourself or on your pet is to try to yank it out by pinching it with your fingers or using tweezers. This can actually cause the tick to vomit its own stomach contents back into the host, i.e. you or your pet. This is when infection with tick-borne diseases may occur. Now there’s a fast, efficient and chemical-free way to easily slide ticks right out of your pet’s skin without squeezing or tweezing.

Dangers of improper tick removal

Tick prevention is, of course, the best way to be sure that your pet will not become infected with tick-borne diseases. Even with some types of oral flea and tick preventatives, the insect must first bite your pet before the active ingredients will kill the pest. If you should find a tick embedded in your pet’s skin, your first reaction may be to try to squeeze, pinch or dig it out. This is very dangerous. Not only could you force the contents of the tick’s body into your pet’s tissues as mentioned above, but the tick could also be broken into pieces, leaving remnants (including the biting head) stuck in your pet’s skin. These remnants themselves could harbor disease or cause skin rash and infection. The longer a tick is in the skin, the greater the risk of disease transmission. Diseases carried by ticks include:

  • Ehrlichiosis
  • Lyme Disease
  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
  • Tularemia
  • Southern tick-associated rash illness (STARI)

TickSee Tick Removal Kit helps you take out the tick

Emergency tick removal is easy and safe with the TickSee Tick Removal Kit. Inside the kit, you’ll find the ingeniously simple TickKey tick removal device. This durable, anodized aluminum tick removal tool is all you need to safely and completely remove ticks from pets or people without using chemicals or tweezers.

How to remove a tick with TickKey

Simply place the widest part of the teardrop-shaped opening in the key over the tick’s body and slide it back away from your pet’s skin. The tapered portion of the key’s opening will grasp the tick by the neck, easing it out of the skin using natural leverage.

Also included in the TickSee Tick Removal Kit is the versatile Grip-On Hands-Free LED Flashlight, designed to clip or grip onto hat brims, fingers, round handles or fabric to allow for hands-free tick removal. The super bright white 3-bulb LED trio shines a concentrated beam of light right where you need it to help quickly and easily find the biting tick and ready the area for removal with the TickKey.

  1. We live in the country and although I use a tick preventative, they do manage to get through at times!! I hate those things!! Ticks are just terrible! I could use this when my two rescue girls do get a tick!

  2. We live in the country where there seems to be no shortage of ticks. Yes, my pups (two schnauzers Sara and Jasper) are treated, but that doesn’t seem to be enough to stop ticks from gnawing down on them. Heeeelp!!

  3. I’m moving to North Carolina and want to be prepared! My pup hasn’t have a tick yet, but we’ll be hiking a lot.

  4. I am a FSO for the US Goverment and I am living in Serbia. I have since moving here I found out that Serbia has a very big problem with tick. I have two Dachshonds I have to keep clean.

  5. It would be such a great tool for the battle against ticks. When I was a child I got very sick and my mom discovered I had a tick probably from the neighbor’s dog. Since then I’m so paranoid about ticks.

  6. We recently moved off the beach to a rural area, and ticks just seem to LOVE attaching themselves onto our two pit bulls. They go in the woods a lot (and we like to hike) and when we come back I usually find at least two ticks on each dog! They are easy to spot since they have short hair, but the TickSee Tick Removal Kit would be a great product to ensure the safety of our pets and making sure we remove the entire tick rather than just ripping it off.

  7. Yes it would come in handy for me! I hate ticks and sometimes my kitty boy goes outside. Evey time he comes in I check him all over for ticks, sometimes he has a tick and they are scary to remove, thank you for the chance!

  8. I have trouble removing ticks with my fingers, This kit would help alot. I Have a shepherd very thick hair,which makes it hard to remove the TICKS. Thank You

  9. Anything to keep my dog safer is something i need!

    This is the first year since I’ve lived here that I’ve actually seen a tick – on me. This would help if I see one on one of my dogs.

    A Tick See tick removal kit would be a great plus to our first aide kit. Being a Girl Scout Leader and camping most of the summer, my 12 yr old pup would appreciate this!

  12. I have two dogs and they love to go on forest walks, Abby the chocolate lab also duck hunts, although I use a good preventative product they still do get a tick, by the time I find them they are usually dead due to the medication, but I still have to remove a dead tick. Penny my puggle particularly hates this procedure and won’t stay still. If this tool is a better alternative to tweezers I’m all for it! My dogs are precious to me and I never want to increase their chance of infection or disease!

    We leave in a woodsy area and my dog loves to get in touch with nature..lol
    Plus I am a pet owner newbie and never removed a tick before.
    We tried the K9 advantage but did not work as well for fleas for him. SO he is in a different preventative that only prevents fleas.
    Thank you!

  14. We leave in a woodsy area that we just moved. And my dog loves to get in touch with nature..lol
    Plus I am a newbie pet owner and never have removed a tick before.
    We tried the K9 advantix but did not work well on his fleas.
    He’s in a different preventative now that prevents only fleas.
    But I also shampoo him once in a while with a tick and flea shampoo.
    So I am crossing my fingers.
    Thank you!
