Useful Information

Tick Fever

Posted on Thursday, February 1, 2007

Ticks

Ticks are such small insects, but they can pose a very great danger to us and our companion animals. They prey on the blood of dogs, horses, deer, birds, rodents, and people. There are hundreds of kinds of ticks, including the dog tick and the deer tick.

The diseases that ticks can transmit to companion animals include Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis (a bacterial infection), and babesiosis (a blood disorder). Tick-borne Rickettsioses - Rickettsia conorii + Rhipicephalus sanguineus (brown dog tick) + Rhipicephalus sanguineus (brown dog tick).
Ticks live in cracks and crevices in the home or outside in vegetation, such as grassy meadows, woods, brush, and weeds. They cannot fly or jump.

The Tick Paralysis female cattle tick is a common one in the warm climates of Australia, the tick release a toxin while feeding that causes tick paralysis. The toxin affects the nervous system and can cause weakness and even paralysis that develops 7-9 days after the tick attachment. The signs can vary from a mild form of unsteadiness of all four legs, to acute quadriplegia that leaves all four legs completely immobilized. This can be successfully treated with homeopathics and tick nosode for prevention of side affects of tick bite.

Tick Removal

At times, ticks can be difficult to find. Common places to find hidden ticks are the head, neck, ears, or feet. The longer a tick is attached to its host, the greater the chance for disease. If you find a tick, remove it immediately with tweezers. To protect yourself, wear gloves and do not touch the tick. Carefully grasp the exposed section of its body near the pet's skin. Gently pull until the parasite lets go. You can help prevent inflammation by applying a natural antiseptic like calendula cream onto the bitten area.

To dispose of the tick, wrap it in several tissues and flush it down the toilet.

Natural Preventative Care

Dog owners should inspect their dogs regularly for ticks, especially after trips outside to the woods or mountains. By thoroughly combing your dog within 4-6 hours of exposure to tick-infested areas, you can help prevent ticks from attaching to your dog.

A natural tick nosode as a preventive is a alternative non toxic way to protect your pets of all ages. Also Natural Treatment is very effective, and again will not cause side affects from the toxicities of drug antibiotics and other drugs.

These Tick Fever ARE SUGGESTED TREATMENTS for Canines.
