TICK SEASON IS UPON US. THIS DISTURBING POSTING APPEARED ON FACEBOOK RECENTLY. THERE ARE SEVERAL SERIOUS DISEASES SPREAD BY TICKS, SO MAKE SURE YOU ARE VIGILANT AT ALL TIMES TO KEEP THEM OFF YOUR PETS AND YOURSELF!
Kyley is was perfectly healthy got up Tuesday with no feelings in hind legs, by Thur. She was completely paralysed from the neck down, after several vet appt. I ended up taking her to a vet neurologist. I was told she had a brain tumour and there was nothing that could be done. I left that vet with Kyley to take home and make her as comfortable has possible. Mark and I were devastated! Our baby going dying. I had hard time believing that a brain tumour could cause this much paralysis in only 72 hrs. After researching I read an article about "Tick Paralysis". Immediately I texted Mark from work and told him to search thoroughly. Found a tick! Called neurologist and they totally dismissed our findings. Within 4 hrs after tick removal Kyley was able to hold her head up. It's now 24 hrs and she's up walking around and playing with her toys. This is a very rare tick disease, only common. In Australia. But its here and it got our Kyley. While at the neurologist 2 other dogs had similar symptoms. I can only pray they read this and did not put there animals down. Kyley would have gone into respiratory failure had the tick not been removed. Once tick is removed the animal or human will start to recover immediately. This affects children and adults also.
Please remember that a car is like a tin can. When you are driving you have air conditioning on or windows open, allowing cool air to circulate. When stationary, even in the shade, the temperature can become unbearable in minutes, and can cause unbearable suffering and death to any creature left within. If you can’t take your dog with you when you park the car, then leave him at home in the cool.
