An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately it is currently taking a little longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow 2-3 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Smidge Quick Untick Hooks

Product code: 6568414
(incl VAT)
The Smidge Quick Untick Hooks allows easy, safe removal of any size of tick with a just quick twirl. It doesn't compress the tick's body, so avoiding the possible transmission of any disease agents. It's an essential tool for the family first-aid kit and really handy for your pets as well.

Directions for Use:
Aim to remove the tick without squashing its body or leaving its mouthparts behind.
Choose the right size hook for the tick.
Slide the open end of the Quick Untick along until the head of the tick is hooked. Do not pull upwards.
Holding the handle between thumb and forefinger genly turn 2 or 3 times. As you feel the tick release its mouthparts, gently lift up.

Cleanse the wound with antiseptic.
Wash your hands.
Should a rash or flu-like symptoms develop see your GP.
Retain the tick in a sealed container for testing if needed.

Do Not:
Never try to burn a tick off or twist it with tweezers as this can increase the risk of infection.
