Leishmaniasis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I'm no expert on it but am told it can kill dogs at least....... a helluva nasty thing!
Ain't it just....... it does occur in our area but doesn't seem to be as common here as it is on the coast.
with the tick removal have a look on this website i have bought a couple but havent used them yet, Tick Key Home - The Easiest To Use Tick Removal Device On Earth
I've seen them advertised before but don't know how effective they are or if they prevent the tick from vomiting into the bloodstream during removal or not but probably well worth a try. :)
Maybe the answer to ticks is to keep the blood/alcohol level up so high they get pissed and fall off! LOL
"RX is: You'll get some Doxicyline (sp) and you will be right as rain in 10 days."
Had tick bite fever when I got back from SA last year, talked my doc, he prescribed the tx above, no big deal.
