Paralysis tick identification.
Cairns Vet Clinic gets many enquiries from Cairns Pet owners about how to identify paralysis ticks. Cairns Pets should be searched daily for ticks during the Paralysis tick season from June to December (the tick season is different in other regions) if they go into Paralysis tick-infested areas (which may include your yard!). Symptoms of tick paralysis include weak or wobbly walk, vomiting or being off food, difficulty breathing, change in voice and dilated pupils.
