The Original TICKED OFF is the world's simplest tick remover. It's ideal for pet lovers, groomers, campers, sportsmen, hunters, fishermen, hikers, etc. TICKED OFF is the only single-motion tick remover designed to help you remove ticks in a timely and effective manner, with your safety in mind. The simple tool is easy to hold and use and has been proven in removing disease carrying ticks from animals and people.
Directions: May be used in any direction, front, back or side, to remove ticks. Once the tick has been isolated, is clearly visible and free from obstruction, place the wide part of the notch on the skin near the tick (hold skin taut if necessary). Applying slight pressure downward on the skin, slide the remover forward so the small part of the notch is framing the tick. Continuous forward sliding motion of the remover detacthes the tick. The tick is now entirely removed. Dispose to the tick or save for testing. Treat the wound as needed. Clean the tick remover with alcohol or similiar disinfectant. For adult and adult-supervised use; not at toy.
I like the idea of the product, but the ticks where I live are normally to small for this product to work. It works if the tick is fully engorged, but not if they have just attached to the dog. I did find one product that works well: Pro-tick Remedy.

The easiest tick remover for pets and people, I have ever used!
I have seen this selling for $8 at places.

Great concept. I have one and it works for large ticks, but the small ones it's to big for and it slides right over the tick. If they made a small one for the 1/8 inch ticks that would be great and yes I have written them about it.
