'Tom O'Hook' Tick Hook

Ticks are what is known as a ‘vector’ for zoonotic disease transmission. In other words, they carry microorganisms that cause diseases in both animals and people, from one animal to another. Disease transmission occurs when ticks feed.

 
For ticks to transmit disease, they must first feed on an infected animal, then fall to the ground, then develop into the next stage of their life cycle, and finally jump aboard another animal and feed again.
 
The three most important tick-borne diseases that British pet owners should be aware of are:
    Lyme Disease
    Ehrlichiosis
    Babesiosis

If pets are left to scratch them off parts may be left behind in the skin and cause infections.

There isn´t always a vet around so use a specially designed tick hook. Just hook it under and twist it off.

Many, many thanks -

 I am not sure of which staff member dealt with my order for chloramine T, but I would just like to say a massive thank-you for getting the item in the post as quickly as she did. To my mind her actions were above and beyond the normal call of duty and I really appreciate it.
