AlgarveVet Blog “Tick Removal”

Even though it is Autumn, the ticks are still active. Removing them carefully is very important. They attach to your dog, your cat or your body by a barbed mouth. If the mouth is left behind during removal an abscess can result. If the tick gets stressed during removal it may regurgitate – this injects the diseases they carry (several, which cause fevers and anaemias) into your animal’s body.

Using a device like the Tick Twister ensures the tick is gently and entirely removed – it unscrews the mouth from the skin and is lifted away.
