The O’TOM® hooks (also marketed in USA under the trademark “TICK-TWISTER®”)
allow tick removal from the skin of animals and people.
They are always sold in a two pack (the large hook for the medium and
large ticks, the small hook for small and very small ticks) , and are
currently the most efficient tools to remove all ticks, any size and
- without leaving the mouth parts of the tick planted in the skin
- without compressing the abdomen of the ticks, minimizing the transfer agents (Lyme's disease, babesiosis...)
- without ether or other products
- in a few seconds, without pain
