I have just removed a brown 'tick' from my GSP. He is not unwell in any way.
Daughter mentioned to me a couple of days ago about seeing a little black dot on his leg but we forgot about it, and he isn't unwell or displaying any symptoms what so ever. Its hard to see any black dots on him anyway as he is white with black spots!
Anyway, it has moved from where she saw it orignally and where it was has like a little red mozzie bite area. I removed the tick with a pair of tweezers and OH was saying it was a bit of dirt but once I put it on my hand it wriggled! So its obvouisly some sort of creature.
I am assuming that we don't have paralysis ticks here in SA? Do I need to be concerned about this "tick". Is it a tick? should I be doing anything else?
