Congrats to Sandee and others that have new chicks hatch. Sorry for your loss of your chick luke. Had another fun weekend here . Friday my son had a friend from Brisbane come up for the weekend. They took thor for a walk down the gully. When they got back they said it was odd he had trouble getting back up the bank.(this is about 6pm) Hubby looks and he has another tick Pulled it off and kept an eye on him as at that stage he was showing no signs of effects from it. By Saturday morning he could hardly get up so we raced him tot he local vets. They kept him in to monitor him for 6 hours as they only like to use anitvenom as a last resort as they can become allergic to it and if he needed it again he may not be able to have it. After 6 hours he was no worse so we got to take him home. They said he is one lucky boy. They tick washed him there. He is still very lethargic this morning and a little better I would think but certainly no worse.Vet said it could take up to 7 days for him to get his strength back. My poor thor... So now I am on the look out for yet another tick treatment. He had on a tick collar and advantix spot on as well as being bathed in wool wash. Will have to see what other brands I can find and try them.
