Tick Removal Tools for Cats

Ticks. Small spider-like parasites that feed on blood, probably well known. They burrow into the skin, so to speak, and suck themselves full of your cat’s blood. When they are full, they often let go on their own. Unfortunately, they can transmit various diseases. So always try to remove a tick from your cat as soon as possible.

Removing ticks on a cat with a tick removal tool

Check your cat daily for ticks. Found one? Then remove it as soon as possible. The risk of transmitting disease is lowest in the first 24 hours after it has attached itself to your cat.

Removing them can be done with tick forceps (similar to tick tweezers), tick hooks, tick cards or tick grippers. Which one is best to use depends on the size of the tick and your own preference.
Do not remove a tick without a tick removal tool. You want to remove the entire tick and without a tool you will often not succeed. The head, for example, will remain stuck and this can cause infections. Do not use tweezers for humans when removing ticks. These as it were squash the tick, causing it to empty its potentially infected salivary glands, thus increasing the risk of disease.
