Tick SR Makes Dog Tick Removal Quick and Painless
If your dog as ever had ticks, you never forget that experience. What a pain – for you and your dog. But there’s a solution for quick and painless dog tick removal and it’s called Tick-SR.
Did you know that ticks stick to your dog using its own nasty kind of glue? Ick! No wonder dog tick removal is so hard. And that’s where Tick-SR (the SR stands for Slow Release) goes to work. It dissolves the glue that creates a bond between the tick and the dog. Not only that, but the solution stops the blood flow at the point on contact – no more free meal for you, nasty tick! Once there’s no more glue and no more food, the tick can be easily removed. And not just parts of the tick – the whole tick comes off of your dog.
Tick-SR comes in pre-moistened wipe or in bottles, depending on what method you find works best for you. Here’s how you use it: Find the tick and apply Tick-SR to the attachment point. Gently pull as close to the tick’s mouth as possible. You don’t need tweezers, but you will need to wipe the tick away with the pre-moistened wipe or a tissue (if you’re using the bottle). If the tick doesn’t want to come off, then reapply the solution. It’s important to note that the longer the tick has been attached, the longer it will take Tick-SR to work. When a tick has been attached to a dog for more than 24 hours, it will be engorged with blood. In cases like these, you may need to reapply Tick-SR a few times to get that little pest off. Always be sure to pull the tick out in straight motion and do not twist the tick as you are pulling. Once the tick comes off, flush it down the toilet and throw the wipe in a garbage located outside the house.
One of the things we like about this dog tick removal product is that it doesn’t irritate the tick. People often use olive oil or Vaseline (or even try setting the tick on fire, which by the way, you should never do) to try to detach the tick from the dog. These things just make the tick angry. And you won’t like the tick when it gets angry – it will show its displeasure by spilling the contents of its gut into your dog. Tick-SR doesn’t irritate the tick at all. In fact, the tick won’t know what’s going on until it’s too late and its being given a burial at sea (aka your toilet).
Tick SR doesn’t kill ticks – it just makes the dog tick removal process quicker and easier. It will stop the spread of infection and all of the ingredients in the formula are safe for dogs and humans.
