Top 5 Early Signs of Tick Toxicity

The North Shore and Northern Beaches of Sydney are home to the deadly paralysis tick. Turramurra Veterinary Hospital remind all out client that peak tick season runs from September to February though can even occur in winter.

Pets may show some or all of the following signs:

  • Vomiting (mainly dogs)
  • A change in the meow or bark (laryngeal paralysis)
  • Incoordination
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Paralysis

Signs of tick toxicity usually occur within 3 days of tick attachment.

If your pet shows some of these signs and you are suspicious of a tick, bring him or her in immediately for assessment. The earlier the tick is located and removed and treatment started, the better the prognosis.
