Tick Removers for Veterinary Medicine
Tools like tick removers and tick pincers play a meaningful roll in the removal of skin parasites. The choice of tick remover comes down to the user's personal preference, although a suitable instrument should be deployed for removing the parasite.
The tick is a parasite that belongs to the order of the mites, which nourishes itself on the blood of it's host. Over the course of its life, a tick invests multiple hosts, typically one per developmental stage. The common wood tick (ixodes ricinus) is the most well known species of ixodidae. Humans, wild animals and house pets are among the common hosts of this ectoparasite.
Since the tick is a carrier of dangerous diseases, a single tick bite can have dire consequences for humans and animals. Among the diseases transmitted by the common wood tick is lyme borreliosis and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE). Babesiosis, which is particularly commonly diagnosed in dogs (also known as canine malaria), is also transmitted by ticks. This disease can be life threatening.
Correct Tick Removal with a Suitable Instrument
Before biting into its host, the tick first seeks out an area on the body that is difficult to scratch. This factor makes it possible to remove the tick before it can bite, if discovered in time. If the parasite has already latched onto the skin, then it is important to carefully remove it as quickly as possible. Tick removers are excellent for this; just as are tick pincers and other tools. One should not attempt to kill the tick with oil, glue or other liquids. In stressful situations, the tick is likely to earlier release the contents of its innards into the wound from its mouth. This greatly increases the risk of an infectious transmission.
Tick Pincers for Effective Tick Removal
There are many various tools that ease tick removal. The tick remover has proved an extremely effective tool. This instrument is equipped with jaws that grasp and secure the tick for removal. As opposed to common forceps, the jaws of the tick remover do not need to be manually pushed together. The tick remover has a mechanism that automatically holds the jaws together and only releases them at the push of a button. In order to remove the tick, the tick removers are placed directly on the skin around the tick. With multiple cautious turns of the device, the tick is gently removed from the skin.
