I got to use this handy little implement last night for the first time. This morning, I tried to PM Chief -Yeah to thank him for bringing it to my attention in his treasure trove thread. Well, his pm inbox was full so I couldn't. This thread will have to serve as a way to communicate my thanks to him. Heres a quick rundown: I had never seen or heard of the Tick Twister before reading through Chief's Treasure Trove thread, but the video and cheap price sold me. I ordered one, and it sat on my dresser for several days. Last night, I was on the couch with my dog Loki (he is a Siberian Husky) and noticed a tick on his neck. Tick Twister to the rescue! I have rarely seen such a useful tool. I am stunned by how easy and well it worked. Tick removed completely in a matter of two seconds. No wound or two month scab, which usually results when hand removing or tweezer removing a tick because some small mouth parts I always leave under the skin. I closely studied the removed tick. It was completely and totally intact. I plan to tell my vet about it next visit. The twister now resides in my EDC bag so I will have it nearby if I need it. Seriously, thank you for bringing this little tool to the forum's (and my) attention, Chief-Yeah. Loki sends his thanks as well!
