Here is all the essentials you need to remove ticks and thorns from both you are your dog. Forceps and a Tick Nipper mounted on a handy piece of plastic.
The Tick Nipper’s jaws are thinner than the tips of tweezers so they slide under the tick’s body without squeezing it. Then the big stops between the handles keep you from cutting the tick as you grip it. The jaws are nearly an inch long, giving you control you can't get with tweezers or fingers. The Tick Nipper® doesn’t ‘grab’ the tick. Instead, its jaws ‘yoke’ loosely around the tick's narrow mouthparts. When you pull the tick out, those jaws exert pressure on the tick’s shoulders and pop it out.
The Tick Nipper’s bowl-shaped jaws cradle the tick safely after liftoff. You need only one hand to use it, leaving your other hand free to tend the wound or comfort the victim.
The flea comb is the best way to remove ticks that are not imbedded in your dog’s skin. If you use a spot on tick killer they often crawl around on top the fur and I’ll stop while hunting when the dog checks in and give him a quick tick pick. Sometimes you can get 3 or 4 in one scoop when they are really heavy. Keep one in your vest pocket or on a lanyard. You'll use it constantly!
Our forceps are 5.5" straight stainless steel. A must, for your canine first aid kit, Also great for home/hobby projects, computer repair and fly-fishing!
