My D has just informed me that Kirby (GR) is on antibiotics because they found a tick on him. I don't know the details of what type of poison it is but I was told that he possibly got it from the backyard! He has apparently a wound on the back of his neck (could be the bite!?).
I don't know much about ticks but I know that they are dangerous both to humans and dogs.
My D has gone on holidays and has a friend housesitting and looking after Kirby. However, so as to feel like he hasn't been abandoned, I was asked to go over when I can and take Mimi along.
I am scared for Mimi (and for me too!). If the ticks are in the backyard shouldn't it be sprayed or something to kill them?
