    Tick Removal

    Admin edit: Please be aware the below method of removing ticks is not recommended.


    Had this sent to my deer dog facebook group from one of our US members,

    Have not tried it yet,

    anybody els heard of this way ?

    I thought it was a bad thing to smother them..!

    I have bean told about lots of differant methods of tick removal but this one is a new one to me.

    Tick Removal.

    A nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove ticks where they automatically withdraw themselves when you follow her simple instructions. Read this one as it could save you from some major problems. Tick Removal: Spring is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads. Here is a good way to get them off you, your children, or your pets. Give it a try. Please forward to anyone with children, hunters or dogs; or anyone who even steps outside in summer! A School Nurse has written the info below--good enough to share--and it really works! "I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. This is great because it works in those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark h...air, etc.":

    Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.

    This technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me.." "Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this method and immediately called me back to say, "It worked!" Please pass on. Everyone needs this helpful.

    DO NOT DO THIS SOAP TRICK

    Please avoid it like the plague.

    1) Any thing which does not grip the mouth parts to remove immediately can cause the tick to spasm and send its stomach contents including Lymes disease into the host.

    2) Have a look on the O'Tom.com website microphotographs where you can see that the mouth parts have little barbs on them and by twisting the head of the tick the barbs are wrapped around the mouth tube and are thus released. Pulling has the opposite effect.

    3) The original post seems to use an awful lot of anecdotal reference to medical personel in order to reassure. Reads like a con to me.

    4) Buy a set of O'Tom tick removers, Limulus has an ad in classified!

    5) have a look on the bada-uk.org charity website.

    6) DO NOT DO THIS SOAP TRICK

    EDIT give a lie a head start and you will never catch it up, could the moderators delete this thread incase somebody only reads the first post.
