It's called The Tick Key, and it is without a doubt the quickest, easiest, most efficient way to remove a tick I have ever seen! We have deer ticks here in our area and Rosey, Lucy and Paul have all been bitten by them. Deer ticks carry Lyme disease which can be a devastating illness for man or beast if not caught and treated properly.
Deer ticks are so tiny that, despite our best efforts, often the head is left in the dog after removal, and then we end up with a wound that has to be treated because it becomes infected. That was until The Tick Key. This little doohickey works to remove the whole tick in one quick pull.
It costs about $5, is made out of aluminum and has a little hole it in to carry on a key chain or to hang right from your pet's collar. If you can't find one in a sporting goods store near you, visit their web site.
