tick twister to remove ticks from dogs or cats or other animals

4 Paws Pantry & Spa also carries the ZenPet Tick Tornado. When ticks bite, they insert their long, central mouth-part (called the hypostome) into the skin. The hypostome is covered with sharp, backward-facing barbs (similar to a harpoon) which help keep the tick firmly attached while feeding. The twisting motion of the Tick Tornado removes the tick while keeping the tick’s mouth-parts intact. Pulling on a tick with ordinary tweezers can leave the mouth-parts embedded in the skin.


In addition to being safe for pets, natural insect repellents are generally considered more environmentally friendly compared to chemical alternatives. They are less likely to harm beneficial insects or contaminate water sources when used as directed.
