If you reside in an area where ticks live, your family and your pet could be at risk for contracting a laundry list of possible tick borne diseases. That makes the Tick Pick an essential tool to have on hand. Once bitten it is essential to remove the tick as quickly as possible to reduce illness exposure. The Tick Pick’s design allows the tick to be removed without leaving the mouth-parts of the tick implanted in the skin. When the tick is hooked properly, twisting can help keep the body intact reducing the risk of infective body fluids transferring from the mouth parts and into the wound site.
The Tick Pick comes in a package of 2 different sized picks. Depending on the size of the tick depends on which pick you use. The Tick Picks are made of plastic so cleaning or disinfecting the tool is easy.
Note: While the use of the Tick Pick can minimize tick borne diseases to you or your pet it in no way guarantees that the victim had not been contaminated with a tick borne disease before the tick was removed. We do not recommend self-diagnosis as a substitute for consultation a health-care provider or veterinarian.
