It's tick time in the West - Pacific Crest Insurance

Dr. Mike Koob is the chief of staff of the Idaho Humane Society's Veterinarian Medical Center in Boise.
He said that ticks are very common in Idaho and if you take your dog for a walk in the woods, foothills or desert you're going to get them and if you find one on your pet, just pull them off. "There is no magic potion and you don't have to set your dog on fire either," he said. Dr. Koob explained that a tick bites its host then spits into the bite with an anti-coagulant to keep the blood flowing. Some animals react worse to that chemical, the spit, than others, he said. According to Koob, the spring is the worst. Koob said there are six tick-borne diseases that are present in ticks in North America and all of them are very rare in Idaho. "That doesn't mean people should not take precautions and protect their pets," he said. "They should take preventative action. It's just that in 30 years of practicing veterinary medicine in Idaho, I have never personally documented a case of a tick-borne disease." Tick paralysis is another story. Paralysis can be spread from any tick species but, it is not a disease. "Dog's reacts to the spit as if it was a nerve toxin," Koob said. "If a dog is tick-sensitive and gets enough ticks on him they can get tick paralysis. The best thing to do is to take the ticks off and the paralysis will go away. Sometimes recovery takes longer is some dogs that others. Koob was treating a blue healer a few years ago that had more than 40 ticks on him. The dog was shaking, trembling and couldn't use his legs very well. "We went over him very carefully and removed all the ticks and within an hour he was fine," he said. Koob suggested using a fine-toothed comb or just feel your pet a little bump. Once the ointment is applied it will probably migrate over the body within a days or so Koob said. "Ticks will still also get on the animal and they may burrow down on the animal and even bit your pet, but once they bit the animal the product will kill them." According to Koob, once in a while, especially in Idaho because we have so many ticks, you'll get an overload and you get a tick and you'll think the product doesn't work because the tick has already latched on, they are going to die and 99 percent don't get that far. Koob said that a tick probably does not cause any real discomfort for the animal.
