tick bite paralysis

Keywords: tick bite, paralysis

Four days after removing six ticks from my dog, Emmy, she began to walk awkwardly. The same afternoon I also noticed unusual drooling. The next morning though she had her usual appetite and spunky disposition her bark seemed weak. Her awkward gait remained the same.

Online research led me to learn of an uncommon neurotoxin that can be transmitted to the host by a female tick. Paralysis, pooling of saliva, loss of voice, vomiting, and eventual respiratory failure is the progression of the illness left untreated. After consulting our veterinarian who said this condition is rare, I performed Access at 11am then again at 3pm. By 7pm she was racing after a tennis ball in the fashion of her usual self. I continue to perform Access on her on a regular basis. I am so grateful to have these skills to help the body help itself.
