We are being challenged at the sanctuary by this pesky pest! Discussions with my colleagues indicate this seems to be a common problem, at least throughout Southern California.
Besides the obvious problems of potential anemia if heavily infested; ticks can also carry a number of diseases. Lyme’s disease, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted fever are the most common tick borne diseases.
The symptoms of all of these diseases are similar.
More severely afflicted dogs will also have vomiting and diarrhea. Death may occur! A period of tick feeding is required to transmit these diseases. Therefor, quick removal will help prevent infection.
If your pet exhibits any of these signs after a tick infestation have them examined by your veterinarian.
