    Thanks Floyd.

    So many people think they are safe from ticks. Hopefully there will be a few less of them this season!

    Good stuff Floyd. I hate tick season, we had them in Kuranda{rainforst} & I"m thinking they will be worse now we live near the beach. Hard to find on my two as well, they both got one last year.

    Fantastic info and would be a good sticky. I had a tick behind my ear apparently when I was a kid, living in Sydney. We are lucky here too that they are not common or not around.

    They're little bastards those ticks i pulled one of Stars shoulder a couple months ago, scrubbed her up with permoxin, I relaxed a bit with the rince so i make sure its done regularly now.
    Been pretty lucky though ive only seen 2 on my dogs in a year.

    Oh no Malinois! How can you go looking for it??? Is there a dog gynaecologist? At least when it is topical there is a chance of finding it. I just bathed Mimi and Pepsi today. Nothing on them that I could see. They had just had a walk and a swim at Ruffey Lake and Mimi was running through the bushes and long grass! I am glad I had this experience with Kirby because otherwise I wouldn't have known about ticks. Reading this thread with Floyd's info was so fortuitous.
    Choppa Chop, I decided to not take Mimi and see Kirby. Sorry. Too bad. I don't want to risk it. They'll have to wait until he has finished his antibiotics. The weather here has been so humid and hot that it may be possible that there are ticks in Kirby's kennel or garden or wherever.

    Thanks for the reminder Natty, great thread!
    Thanks also AF for the detailed info on ticks - great reading.
    As we speak, I just did my monthly tick treatment on the pooches (1st of the month). Whilst I haven't had any dramas with paralysis ticks, I removed many of the grass ticks from my 2 last year. I am very cautious now as they are prevalent up here in the North!
    Hate em!

    The vet found it after she died, he knew COD was from tick & was not satisfied until he found it. Freaky, but it did happen.

    Oh Mal, I am so sorry. I guess though it was great of the vet to be so vigilant to find it.
