Are you ready for tick season?
Tick season can last about 7 months of the year! Ticks start to appear in +4 temperatures. Most of the ticks that have been submitted for testing from our area are American Dog Ticks (Also known as Wood Ticks) but a few found are the Blacklegged Ticks (also known as Deer Ticks). The ones we are more concerned about are the Blacklegged Ticks, although more commonly found in British Columbia they have been known to migrate here; these are the ones that have the potential to carry the bacteria that can cause Lyme Disease. Fortunately we can vaccinate our canines against this potential harmful disease. If you tend to travel to highly wooded or grass areas, live on a farm or take your furry friend camping this is an excellent prevention we have available. The bacteria is often transferred to the animal if the tick is attached for more than 2 to 3 days so using a parasitiside or repellent such as Nexguard, Bravecto or Advantix is also a great preventative. If you have any questions regarding these products please call us at 306-934-8288. If you find a tick please bring it in to us as well and we can send it off for a study with no charge to you.
Lyme Disease is caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium and is spread by infected ticks. It can be very difficult to observe the signs as they are not always obvious, symptoms can include:
- Stiff walk with an arched back
- Sensitivity to touch
- Difficulty breathing
- Fever, lack of appetite, and depression
- Superficial lymph nodes close to the site of the infecting tick bite may be swollen
- Lethargy (tiredness)
- Painful joints/lameness-can be seen as "Shifting-Leg Lameness"
- Renal Failure-vomiting, diarrhoea, lack of appetite, weight loss, increased urination and thirst, and abnormal fluid buildups
- Heart abnormalities are reported, but rare
- Nervous system complications (rare)
Treatment consists of antibiotics for extended periods of time as an outpatient unless in renal failure (then may need to be hospitalized). Some cases even with the antibiotics the infection can reoccur at a later time and still cause damage. The best medicine is prevention!
