M.A.I.N. would like to take these two cuties that came into East yesterday. Sick little boys, covered in ticks. They tested negative for tick fever on the snap test done at County, but with the number of ticks that they had, the probability that they have tick fever is pretty high.
Their guns were so pale as the ticks were literally sucking the life out of them. We will be following up with some blood work to check and get them started on medication right away. Shelter volunteers give them a bath and spent some time cleaning and picking ticks last night, and Linda and Kim spent more time this afternoon picking ticks. My heroes!
Update later on August 25th 2017:
This is after tonight’s bath. They are very cute and affectionate. They have to be feeling a little better with the zillion ticks off them. They had a bath and a nice dinner and are curled up sleeping right now near me as I finish up my work for the day..
Update September 11th 2017:
Brett and Owen.. From intake to weeks later.. What a difference!
