I want to emphasize again that examining your pet’s body regularly must be part of your total pest preventive plan.
All pest repellents (both chemical and natural) are only deterrents and your pet will still get bugged by bugs on occasion. Certainly, keeping your pet clean with frequent baths and brushing is part of a regular examination program.
Removing most of the pests you occasionally find on your dog or cat is not a big issue except for one … ticks. Ticks bore into your pet’s skin using backward-pointing spikes that can make safely removing them difficult.
One of the best tools I’ve come across and highly recommend as part of my natural system for protecting your pet is the Tick Stick.
The Tick Stick is one of the few tools I’ve found that allows you to actually hold the tick (without compressing it) and remove it by using a twisting, rather than a pulling motion.
The twisting motion allowed by the Tick Stick takes advantage of the tick’s rostrum structure. As you twist, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, making it easier to remove the tick—so you can safely and easily remove ticks.
- Choose the most appropriate hook, according to the size of the tick.
- Engage the hook by approaching the tick from the side until it is held.
- Lift the hook very lightly and twist it until the tick detaches by itself.

I volunteer at a dog shelter and at times the dogs get humogous blood sucking ticks which are super fat and disgusting. It is difficult to get the ticks off especially if you are not used to pulling them off A couple of us used it today and I am amazed at how much easier it is to remove the ticks! before i would have fumbled for a good 40 seconds trying to yank the disgusting thing off, and with the stick - it was so easy to position and then simply pull it off in 5 seconds? plus, i don't have to touch the gross tick. a friend who is AMAZING at removing the ticks with her bare fingers also found the stick useful for small ticks! I was skeptical if the stick would work as well as it claim, and boy, i'm soooo glad to have bought this!!
