The Tick Twister is the perfect tool for painless manual removal of ticks from your pet's skin and yours.

+ It does not leave the tick's rostrum stuck in the skin.
+ It does not compress the tick's abdomen, thus minimising the risk of transmission of pathogens (Lyme disease, tick-borne encephalitis, piroplasmosis, etc.).
+ It does not require the use of chemicals (alcohol, ether, etc.).
+ It allows a quick, easy and painless removal.
+ It is unbreakable, resistant and can be reused indefinitely.
Ticks are parasites that feed on the blood of animals and humans. During their blood meal, ticks can transmit dangerous diseases, as some ticks carry pathogens (bacteria, parasites,...). Unfortunately, the number of infected ticks has increased considerably in recent years.
To minimise the risk of catching a disease, ticks should be removed as quickly as possible, without breaking the rostrum, without compressing the body of the tick, and without assaulting or killing the tick beforehand.
Tick bites can be reduced by using chemical repellents but these often do not provide complete protection, so all pet owners, hikers, etc. should have an effective tick removal tool at hand.
It is essential not to compress the tick during removal, to reduce the risk of saliva regurgitation, which can cause illness and/or allergies.
Tweezers and other instruments currently on the market exert pressure on the tick. The O'TOM®/ TickTwister® hook, which was developed by a veterinarian, takes into account the morphology of the tick and does not compress the tick's abdomen during removal.
The rostrum of a tick is bristling with small spikes that allow the tick to remain attached. When the tick is pulled, these spikes anchor and lock the "head" into the skin. Pulling can cause the "head" to break off and remain partially or completely in the skin, which can lead to painful inflammation or infection. The O'TOM®/ Tick Twister® hook removes ticks by rotation and not by pulling, and thanks to its shape and size, it is very easy to use.
The O'TOM®/ Tick Twister® hook is the only instrument that allows the user to grasp the tick without compressing it, and to remove it by a rotational movement. This technique is the best way to remove ticks completely and safely.
The O'TOM®/ Tick Twister® hook is made of polyacetal. This polymer was chosen for :
- Its strength,
- Its resistance to solvents (alcohol, ether, etc.) and to the various substances that unsuspecting users could have used before removal,
- Its absence of toxicity; polyacetal is entirely recyclable and can be incinerated without chlorine emissions.
1. Choose the most appropriate hook according to the size of the tick.
2. Engage the hook by approaching the tick from the side.
3. Lift the hook very slightly and twist until the tick comes off (1 to 3 turns).

The H3D company, based in the Jura region of France, has been developing know-how and passion for pet owners since 1995, in order to offer them innovative products adapted to their needs.
Denis HEITZ, a veterinarian practising in Oyonnax (France), was faced with the problem of removing ticks from his four-legged patients. Among the instruments then available on the market, none is really satisfactory. He made his own tool, the TICK TWISTER® hook, from a simple nail.
The product evolved over time to meet the growing demand for anti-tick solutions and became a worldwide best-seller.
