    Oh Kelsey, so sorry I'm just getting here to respond! I will continue to pray for sweet Brooklyn. I believe we have similar ticks in the Southern part of the US. Very scary. Do you do preventive tick control?

    Makes me think we should all look into whether there is something similar in our part of the world, and have prevention if so.

    Hugs to sweet Brooklyn from Claire and I!

    Thank you all!
    to answer some questions...I believe Paralysis Ticks are native to Australia (on the coastal/beaches ring), so not sure if they are anywhere else. We do use Advantix, but even the best protection can have holes I guess is the best way to say it. It is important if you are in a tick area, even if you use a tick protector, to still do nightly tick checks. That is how we found this deadly tick so early and frankly, it saved her life. A cavalier down the street from me died last week from this tick, and I was only thinking the worst.

    I have known a lot of dogs on the beaches (in my area) affected, and I am just so grateful that Brooklyn was not like them. She made it. She is my hero. She is so strong and tough and did not even whine. She is an amazing animal. When we went to see her this morning, she was doing funny things with her mouth (the Paralysis tick will stop their gag reflex and almost give them this cotton mouth type thing where the smack their lips and pant a lot which is why they cannot eat or drink for a few days or they will inhale their food vs. swallow it), but she looked good and I...well I smiled for the first time in 24 hours.

    It was a HARD night, a really hard one and I just have never experianced something like this before.

    Anyway, the vet said...SHE WILL COME HOME TONIGHT!!! It was literally "when" we took the tick off". Thank god Bless her heart and thank you all so much for your group thoughts. They get us through some of the hardest situations and I am so grateful.

    I am so glad to hear she is alright. We get ticks out my way too. I still get scared that I will miss one when I check. I am glad she is coming home. What did the vet say about the timing?
