Frontline Tick Remover is designed for use on all sizes of tick.
The simple ‘twist and lift’ action will remove the entire tick safely without leaving any parts of the tick behind which can lead to irritation of the skin and spread disease. Safe for use on humans and animals.
Also features a convenient key ring hole so it can be attached using a key ring loop to other items keeping the remover to hand.
The ‘tick season’ falls between March and October in the UK. Ticks as well as causing irritation from their bites, can also be carriers of bacteria, viruses and protozoa which can be passed onto our pets (and sometimes us!) via their saliva, as they feed on their victim’s blood. This puts our pets at risk of contracting serious tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme disease and also babesiosis.
Ticks live in rich vegetation such as meadows, sand dunes, woodlands and even in our gardens. High density areas for ticks include; Exmoor, The New Forest, The South Downs, The Lake District and Scottish Highlands.
If you sport a tick you need to remove it ASAP. The safest and easiest way to do this is to use the Frontline Tick Remover which will allow you to twist the tick out. Always wear gloves when removing a tick. Applying alcohol, heat, oil, petroleum jelly or squeezing a tick in an attempt to remove it increases the risk of passing on any infection the tick may be carrying.
During the Summer it is important to stay up to date with your pets parasite treatments. *Remember* removal of ticks alone is not sufficient to keep your pet safe as un-engorged or young ticks can be difficult to spot so treat your pet regularly to kill any ticks quickly.
Frontline is the UK’s NO. 1 Flea and Tick brand.
