I highly recommend for anyone who deals with these horrible pests.

Makes it so very easy to remove the tick, you just have to get really as close to the skin as you can before twisting and the tick will come right out !!

We spend a lot of time outdoors and there are tons of lyme disease carrying deer and wood ticks in our region.

This little gadget does actually work most of the time. My Vet charges $8 each for this and he can't keep them on the shelves. I can't say that the device is perfect, but it sure beats trying to get those things off any other way.

It works best when the tick is engorged (and looking like an ugly grey raisin). If the tick is still feeding and not yet fully engorged, it's a little bit harder to get off. However, even noting that, most of the time when you find a tick on your dog, it's either not bitten them yet or, sadly, has already had a feast.

The little prong device is good at sliding around the tick so that when you apply pressure, you release the whole tick and don't leave the mouth embedded in your darling doggie's neck or body. It is much better than using tweezers, a match head (heaven forbid!) or rubing alcohol.

I suggest that you keep one of these in your pet First Aid kit and also carry one with you when you go to the Dog park. it might not even be a bad idea to keep one in the car. This is the kind of device you will want to have multiples of. Buy several at once and save on shipping. You may not think you need one now, but Tick season is just around the corner. The first time you use this, you'll see the genius of it.

My last dog had both Lyme and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, so I am very concerned about controlling ticks. I currently have two dogs and a cat that are constantly getting ticks from playing in wooded underbrush and even going from walks along bike paths. I check them twice a day for ticks and always seem to find some. They are quite often still feeding ticks, which seem to attach more strongly than the full ones.

I've used forceps, another product called Ticked Off, and even my fingers as well as the Tick Twister to remove ticks. I would say that the Tick Twister was the most difficult for me to use and the least effective. As noted in other reviews, it does not work very well on dog ticks that have not finished feeding (which is when you want to get them). It is really useless on deer ticks, which are really tiny (I've had to pull those off of humans as well as dogs). It also isn't good for grabbing ticks that are still crawling around looking for a place to attach. Plus, my pets get impatient with having to sit still while I twist the apparatus and the ticks try to attach more firmly.

If you're looking for a better way to remove ticks, I would recommend Ticked Off. Its spoon shape makes it easy to remove unattached ticks as well as already feeding ticks. It really does work better than forceps style tweezers, but I find even those are better than Tick Twister. Fingers will do in a pinch, too. Just be careful not to get bitten yourself.

The last few weeks have been brutal in terms of numbers of ticks. We have two short haired, indoors but spend time outdoors hiking and playing dogs (A Ridgeback and a Blackmouth Cur). Although we spend a lot of time grooming them for ticks to get them before they embed we still get a range from newly embedded, partially full and fully engorged. All smaller ticks, no full sized dog ticks. After looking at all the tick products available on Amazon I decided to order a bunch. The Tick Key, Coghlan's Tick Remover, Ticked Off, Ticklasso, and the Tick Twister.

tick Twister and the other tools based on a groove are ok, but it's easy for hair to get in the grooves and cause small non-bloated ticks to twist out and take multiple passed (or give up on and grab the lasso). They are better than nothing but can't compare to the lasso.

Of the varieties listed above Ticklasso is simply the best for removing small ticks reliably regardless of engorgement level. It takes a bit longer to get them lassoed than it takes to line up any of the grove (Tick Key, Ticked Off, Tick Twister) style removers, but they come off intact every time and once it's on none slip away. Those may be a bit faster and more effective for fully engorged ticks, but the lasso is SO much better on the not full and small ticks that it's far and away the best for us.

My wife and I and our dog spend much of our freetime outdoors. This is the best tool I've ever seen for removing ticks cleanly and easily. No more pulling wads of dog hair with each tick and when you get a tick it pops them out in seconds including the head. If you ever have to deal with Ticks this is the tool to do the job.

not a bad product. The tick is often dislodged safely but the twister doesnt have anything to capture it so the little arachnid manages to grab back on to the pet. I use this and a tweezer to dislodge and remove the ticks

UPDATE
We have been using this product every day to remove ticks from our dog (and us). We have a lot of tall grass close by and with the Tick epidemic we are having this year, it has become an invaluable and useful tool. I will never use tweezers again!
Ticks remove completely and without fuss or fear of damage within seconds. Works best on large ticks

If you ask 10 people about ticks you will probably get 10 answers with 1/2 or more NOT being sound advice. So that said those that agree that removal of the head and body without grasping in a squeezing fasten this is great. This uses a angled slit to slide easily under the ticks head and with a quick spin between thumb and index finger the tick is removed and in the claw of the tool to be destroyed with your pocket knife.
I have purchased this brand many times for my use personally and as gifts. Also used in my Boy Scouting Adventures. Some of these adventures in tick infested environments while on treks over 7 days. While we do use repellants we can still get multiple ticks trapped in clothing folds and under the flaps of the zip off leg pants. These we pick off and kill. Even with great care and frequent inspections we can still get some to find a place to attach and need to be removed that evening at camp. Once the Scouts use this tool they no longer come running for me to remove this is assuming they can reach it. The Scouts just handle it themselves and report it to me. I assure you in this day of some peoples scrutiny this is best because sometimes ticks can be found in the least desirable locations that is best for me to not be present.
My short answer is to recommend you to try it and I'm sure you will agree.
The littlest ticks such as deer ticks that are only a small speck compared to wood ticks. These can be a little more challenging and may need a couple attempts since it is harder to determine if you are slid on completely. Not as hard as tweezers can be though as tweezers are more likely to squeeze the body.
