Wear latex or rubber gloves when removing a tick. Have someone help hold pet still. With remover, grab tick firmly, close to skin surface. DO NOT PULL! Turn device slowly several times counter-clockwise until tick lets go. Place tick in screw-top jar containing some rubbing alcohol (for testing) in case your pet falls ill. Wash hands with soap and water. Sterilize tick remover after use. Observe your pet over the next couple weeks for signs of infection. If the removal area becomes red or inflamed, consult a veterinarian.
Only 1 star because it would not let me leave blank. Tweezers work 100X better. This contraption just made the tick rip apart into several pieces. Did not grab at all.
Love this little guy!

We just moved to Mississippi from Washington State and our long haired dog loves to run out in woods. She has come home with "little friends" nasty things. This product works perfect to remove them painlessly.
Broke the first time I tried it

I didn't even get to use this product, I took it out of the package ( when I got it, it looked like it was already returned once, the packaging was warn and and edge was ripped) I was testing it out to get the concept and the plastic broke off and popped off. Not impressed. Maybe it was defective or maybe I was sent a used/broken product but that was all I had to judge it by. I would recommend getting something metal.

If you have someone that can assist by holding your pet, it works pretty good. We are going to also try the spoon shaped tick remover to see if it's a little easier for one person.
Worked the first time like a charm

The tool worked just as advertised the first time. I later learned that the challenge comes in trying to get beneath the tick and restless dogs can make it more difficult....would probably be the same with any such tool.

I just followed the directions and it worked great. Previously I tried the key and it couldn't work on a small tick. Not only would it not work, it cost more!
Sentry was recommended by my Vet and it worked perfectly!
harder to manipulate than you would think

I ordered these because I saw a lady use a similar one to remove a tick easily from my hairy dog. But the brand was different. This one is more likely to pinch and doesn't twirl easily to remove the tick. I actually prefer the spoon to this product, but it could partially be my lack of coordination.

I used it on our cat and it works great. Just follow the directions.
