I wish there were only Lyme to worry about frown we have an abundance of dog ticks here...

greet Hi Samuel, didn't see this earlier when I posted! Hope all is well on the other side of the Valley smile

I know we aren't out of the woods, so to speak, with it being a dog tick. Which is why I'm still getting it tested.

And "SPOON!" is the battlecry of the superhero The Tick.

CRAP!

Just found out that our vet no longer does tick submissions. It seems Cornell no longer tests ticks for the diseases they carry. Our other vet's tick submission test will only determine how long the tick has been on your dog, not what it carries. Looks like my only option is to wait 6 weeks and run a tick panel.

Not happy. But what other choice do I have?

The other choice is not optimal either - propjylactic doxy.

Be sure to mark your calendar - today's date, and again in 6 weeks frown

I already made a note on the white board. Will be making one on my calendar later tonight.

Doubt I could convince my vet to do prophylactic doxy. Besides, if I have to do doxy at all, it would probably be better to do it in January. Hopefully she'll be off her herbs by then and I won't have to worry about possible interaction.

I have pulled so many ticks off The Barker Sisters down here. The first one freaked me out but the vet didn't want to see it. Since then, I've gotten less squeemish about them. There's one spray for horses that is effective in detering ticks but I don't know about dogs. Didn't have much luck with them on the BSs. No detected tick borne diseases & I hope it stays that way. May you have the same luck.
