Tick paralysis is often fatal, which means using a preventative is essential if you live in a tick area, or are planning to visit one. Paralysis ticks are found in most areas of the east coast of Australia and can be active year round in warmer climates. Dogs and cats most commonly pick up ticks in their fur when moving through areas of long grass or scrub. Once attached, the paralysis tick feeds on blood, whilst also releasing deadly toxin which causes paralysis, beginning with a change of voice, weakness in the back legs and trouble blinking or swallowing. Without treatment the symptoms progress to paralysis of the muscles of breathing, resulting in death. If you suspect your pet is affected by tick paralysis seek veterinary attention immediately.
