Mikki Tick Picker
Directions for Use:
Ticks can cause soreness and make your pet feel uncomfortable. They are blood sucking parasites and carry diseases such as Lyme disease and can pass them onto your pet. Owners must remove ticks as soon as you find them on your pet’s skin.
To remove the tick, position the picker over the tick with the tick in the largest section of the picker, nearest the handle (fig.1). Lift the handle so that the narrow nose of the picker is flat on the skin. Draw the picker slowly and firmly towards the tick so that it is gripped securely and can be carefully lifted away from the skin and disposed of. Spray area where the tick was attached with disinfectant.
To dispose the ticks, you can drop them in alcohol or squish them in a tissue and flush down the toilet. Clean the tick remover device after each use and wash your hands carefully. Pets should be checked daily for ticks, their immediate removal would minimise the chance of transmitting disease.
If you find one tick, it’s highly likely that you will find a few more. You can use Mikki Tick Picker which is specifically designed to help you remove the ticks easily.
Note: Use smooth movement when lifting the tick. Ensure that there are no traces of tick’s head or mouth–parts left on or in the skin. Pets should be checked daily for ticks, their immediate removal would minimise the chance of transmitting disease.
