Ticks tend to attach to the areas around the feet, ear, neck, and head of the dog. Depending on age, ticks vary in size. The size could be between 1 mm to 1 cm long.
Symptoms of Biliary
- Symptoms are seen normally within the first two weeks
- Common symptoms include fever, pain in muscles, a kind of restlessness, listless, loss of weight, no appetite and pale or yellow gums.
- Symptoms vary with individual dogs and some might experience all the symptoms as well.
- Some kind of ticks can even produce a unique toxin(organic poison made by plants and animals) in the blood causing paralysis in the bitten dog.
If the dog has been bitten by a tick, and you notice a lack of energy and enthusiasm in your dog or any kind of swelling in the joints or fever or any change in the barking pattern, then it needs to be checked immediately.
Contrary to popular belief extracting a tick from your dog does not cause biliary. Leaving the mouth of the tick behind, also does not cause biliary.
Biliary is a deadly disease and if left untreated it will result in death. If you notice ANY of the above symptoms, please consult your veterinarian immediately.
