Aftercare of Tick Cases

Even though your pet is going home after being treated for tick poisoning, a full recovery may take another couple of weeks.

It is very important to ensure your pet does not go for any long walks (except to go to the toilet in the backyard). Allow plenty of rest and allow access to a cool environment.

Feed small amounts of soft food 4-5 times a day for the next 3-4 days as the swallowing reflex may have been affected by the tick poison making it difficult to swallow.

Please return in 2-3 days for a free checkup if it was a severe case, as we wish to make sure everything is going well with your pet.

The anti-tick serum does not give immunity from ticks so check daily for ticks and start on prevention as soon as possible. We do not want to have to repeat the whole exercise in a few days or weeks.

Contact BHVG on (02) 4448 5621 (24 hours) if there is any deterioration in condition after going home.
