Moruya Animal Hospital advise:
Tick Paralysis and Serum Shortage
The tick serum shortage is now critical. We had two full bottles of serum and have shared one bottle with another clinic who had none.
If your pets are not on prevention and are afflicted with tick paralysis it is now likely that we will not have serum left to treat them.
Tick paralysis will result in the death of pets.
We have had one owner elect euthanasia this morning for their severely tick affected pet. It is heartbreaking.
Please use a reputable tick prevention on your pets. We recommend Bravecto.
