Otom Tick Remover
It is essential not to compress a tick during removal, reducing the risk of saliva back-flow, that can lead to infections and/or allergies. Tweezers and other instruments exert a pressure on the tick.

The shape of the O’TOM/ Tick Twister, designed by a veterinarian, takes into account the tick’s morphology.

Tick’s mouth-parts are covered with backward directed projections; this allows the tick to anchor in the skin. By pulling up on the tick, the spikes will rise and lock the mouth-parts into the skin. The tick may break and leave parts in the skin causing infection. By twisting motion, the spikes fold into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum.

The O’TOM/ Tick Twister removes ticks by rotation and not by pulling; among all instruments supposed to use rotation, it is the easiest to use because of its shape and its size.
