Tick removal made easy

Posted in General News on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at 9:30 PM

We have found inexpensive “tick removal tools” to be helpful, and easy to use.  These are sold under a variety of names, but the ones that work best act as a “corkscrew”, whereby the tick is engaged in a narrow v-shaped groove, and then removed with a twisting motion.  We generally have some of these available at the office for a minimal cost.  Click here to see an example.  Many veterinarians sell these, also.

For detailed information about lyme disease, and tick removal, here are 2 reputable websites:
