[New Product] 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:
- Lyme Disease
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
- 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.
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.
