Sadly, tick season is upon us again.
Thankfully Maggie is recuperating now & will soon be ready to find a loving home as a family companion.
To save her it cost us over $2800.
Her foster carer found the paralysis tick & took her immediately to her local Vet. She showed no symptoms & was sent home to be monitored.
After 24 hours with no signs of reaction they were feeling relieved, but 6 hours later she collapsed, & was rushed to the emergency vet.
Maggie was due for re-treatment of her monthly preventative in one week.
Please be vigilant.
Check your fur babies daily.
