I contracted Lyme Disease, as well as several tick borne co-infections, in February, 2011. It was only then that I became very serious about tick control. I rescue dogs, and I had been bitten by dog ticks several times, and thought nothing of it. But when I got bitten by a deer tick I became very ill, and spent months going from doctor to doctor, trying to diagnose this strange illness that had struck me. It turns out to have been pretty simple: tick borne illness. But most doctors don't understand the symptoms.
Since then, I have become very concerned with tick protection for my dogs. I keep tick repellent on them at all times, but even with that, I have found several dog ticks and deer ticks on them, which is quite scary for me. I don't want to handle a tick at all! It has been proven that even touching a tick can transmit disease.
Imagine how thrilled I was to have stumbled across Tick-SR, a product that makes ticks release your dog without touching them, without tweezing them off, and without any contact at all. You simply wipe the tick with the Tick-SR wipe, or pour a little of the Tick-SR liquid on it, and within 4 minutes the tick will release on its own. Magic!
When ticks embed in a host (a dog, cat, deer, mouse, YOU, or other animal), it creates a kind of glue in its mouth to keep it stuck. Tick-SR (safe release) dissolves that glue, making it easy to simply pick the tick up and dispose of it.
I have used Tick-SR on 3 ticks that were embedded and feeding on my dog, Pearl. Once, I had to use 2 wipes, but I think it was just impatience on my part. This product works great. I would recommend that any dog owner, hiker, or camper keep Tick-SR on hand. Do NOT use it on your cat, however. This is strictly a dog product. In a pinch, you can probably use it on yourself too, but don't do it because I said to -- I'd use it on myself, however. No way, no how, I ever want to touch a tick again!
Huge paws up for Tick-SR! Thank you for making it easy to deal with this potentially deadly pest.
Tick-SR™ is patented new product. It works by dissolving the "glue" that creates a bond between the tick and the dog. At the same time it impedes the blood flow to the affected area, thus the tick's ability to feed. With the glue and food supply disrupted; the tick can be more easily removed.
Tick-SR does not kill ticks. Tick-SR aides in the safe removal of attached ticks. In addition, Tick-SR helps to prevent infection at the puncture site.
Tick-SR uses ingredients that are safe for humans and dogs.
