Paralysis Tick Season

These ‘nasties’ are about again. Signs often only appear after the tick has been feeding on your dog’s blood for 3-5 days. Ticks can be picked up from long grass, bushland or thick vegetation. When checking for ticks, run your hands through the fur, ruffling the hair as you go, You are looking for any raised ‘bumps’ or ‘odd’ mounds (often called craters).

There are several signs of tick toxicity you should be aware of; signs can include any of the following;

  • Loss of coordination in the hind legs
  • A voice change – barking becomes quite muted
  • Vomiting, retching, regurgitation or coughing
  • Appetite loss
  • Anxiety, hypersensitivity and distress
  • Progressive paralysis of the body, starting at the hind legs
  • Noisy breathing, grunting, panting

If you suspect your dog has a tick, don’t delay seek veterinary advice quickly.
