our pets and us
It seems that Paralysis ticks (Ixodes holocyclus) are responsible for an increasing range of human health risks in Australia, from Mammalian Meat Allergy (MMA), Ricketsia and a Lyme-like disease. Locally we have seen an increase in recent years in the number of people suffering anaphylactic reactions following tick bites.
To bring us up to date on these issues we have invited Dr Leigh Findlay (veterinarian) to discuss the effect of paralysis ticks on our pets and how to manage them to reduce the incidence and consequences of tick bites.
Dr Ted Chamberlain (previously Senior Medical Superintendent, Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital, currently at Sunshine Coast University Hospital) will shed some light on the issues mentioned as they pertain to human health.
