How to remove a tick from a cat?

What to do if it still failed to protect the cat from ticks? How to pull out a tick at home? Our recommendations will help!

A tick bit a cat: what to do?
Remove the parasite. You can consult a veterinarian or remove a tick from a cat at home, on your own. To do this, use a special tick twister, which you can purchase at a zoo pharmacy.
Grab the tick with the tool close to the bite and gently twist it counterclockwise until it is completely removed. A good tick-twist reliably holds the parasite, while not squeezing its body.

But removing the tick with your fingers is not a good idea. Squeezing the swollen body with your fingers, you make the parasite “spit out” part of the drunk blood into the wound, and with it a larger number of pathogenic microorganisms. Thus, the likelihood of infection increases.

Do not forget to wear gloves!

Treat the bite site with an alcohol-free disinfectant (for example, Vetericin).
Place the extracted tick in a sealed vessel and take it to a specialized laboratory for testing. The results will allow us to judge the risks of cat disease.
Observe the condition of the pet until you get the results of the study, at least during the day. The slightest increase in temperature, loss of appetite, lethargy, any change in behavior – all these are reasons to sound the alarm and consult a veterinarian as soon as possible.
Tick-borne infections may not occur immediately, but damage always occurs very quickly. Without timely and correct treatment, the pet may die.

Be careful and do not risk the health of the wards!
