Tick-SR, a division of Karykion Corporation, has a new approach to tick removal by interrupting the feeding tick by dissolving the glue-like substance that helps it attach to a dog and feed. It also pushes the blood away from the tick’s feeding tube and mouth parts. After removing the food supply and dissolving the glue, the tick can be easily removed. Tick-SR also destroys bacteria and helps to prevent infection. It contains the active ingredient salicyclic acid.
