The new Tick Releaser Spray & Test Kit took top honors by winning the Gold Product Innovation award at Backer's Total Pet Expo 2014. The kit provides not only a means to safely remove ticks, but also to send them in for diagnostic testing to rule out the possibility of disease transmission.
The new Tick Releaser Spray & Mail-In Test Kit from Earth's Balance is an all-encompassing solution. It's a convenient, cost-effective means to protect pets and family. After the tick has been safely removed, it is a good idea to have it tested to ensure it does not carry debilitating disease.
The kit itself includes: releaser spray (made with all-natural essential oils), tweezers, collection tube, alcohol prep pad and mail-in diagnostic testing order form. All-natural and toxin-free, it provides a means to release ticks quickly, safely and intact. Simply spray, tweeze and collect. Then fill out the order form and mail the tick in for your selected diagnostic tests.
For an additional fee, ticks can be submitted and tested for the following diseases: Lyme disease, Anaplasma, Babesia, Ehrlichia, Bartonella, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Tularemia. Prices range from $25 for one disease up to $75 for a total panel of all seven diseases.
Tick Releaser Spray & Mail-In Test Kit will be available in stores and online in early spring. For more information, visit Earthsbalance.com or call 1-800-292-3424.
