Tick-Borne Disease in Dogs

Are your animals at risk? You've seen the headlines. Ticks are spreading across the country, bringing tick-borne disease with them, putting dogs at risk. Read on for our roundup of information about tick species and their habitats. Combine UltraShield® solutions with a few tips and best practices to protect your animals against tick-borne disease!

To make matters worse, ticks go through a nymphal stage during which they are even smaller. Many tick-borne diseases can still be transmitted by ticks during their nymph stage, including Lyme disease. So, let's take a look at the diseases and their symptoms, the most common tick species (don't get too creeped out!) and finally tactics and products that will help you and your animals keep those ticks at bay.

Diseases, Symptoms & Diagnosis

Here is your cheat sheet for recognizing the symptoms of tick-borne disease in dogs.

Lyme Disease

It can take up to six weeks for Lyme disease symptoms to present themselves. It takes between 36-48 hours for the disease to be transmitted once a tick had attached to its host. There are multiple ways to test for Lyme disease, including tests to see if a tick you find on your animal is infected, as well as tests to see if your animal has been infected. Not all animals will contract Lyme even if the tick found on them was positive for it. It's a complicated disease.

  • Joint stiffness
  • Shifting lameness (lameness travels from limb to limb)
  • Low-grade fever
  • Weight loss/loss of appetite
  • Swollen/warm joints
  • Lethargy
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Stiff, arched-back walk (dogs)
  • Uveitis (horses)

Anaplasmosis (Formerly Ehrlichiosis in horses)

Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis present similar symptoms, but are different pathogens and are transmitted by different ticks. Symptoms of Anaplasmosis present themselves in the Acute Stage within one to three weeks of infection. This disease is not always treated in horses, but once diagnosed should be monitored closely as symptoms can worsen and become more severe. Dogs are typically treated for both Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis with antibiotics.

  • High fever
  • Edema/swelling
  • Weight loss/loss of appetite
  • Inability to walk regularly (ataxia)
  • Weakness
  • Depression
  • Lethargy
  • Difficult respiration

Rocky Mountain spotted fever

Dogs will show symptoms within five days of becoming infected. This disease is not considered a problem for horses, but is common in dogs. Purebreds and notably German Shepherds are known to have severe reactions.

  • Depression
  • Lethargy
  • Weight loss/loss of appetite
  • Blood in urine
  • Irregular heart beat (arrhythmia)
  • Discolored skin
  • Inability to walk regularly (ataxia)
  • Edema/swelling
  • Sudden bleeding from nose, or bloody stool
  • Difficulty with blood clotting
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Pain in the eyes
  • Inflammation, hemorrhage, or conjunctivitis in the mucosal membranes, most commonly in the eyes

Prevention

You'll want to do everything you can to keep ticks off your dogs. In addition to our UltraShield tick protection products, add these tips to your plan for a tick-free season!

  • Remove their environment. Ticks like the transition areas and bushes on the edges of fields. Trim back bushes at the edges of lawns and fields where your animals hang out. Ticks will also hide on low plants at the edges of trails. Once they know animals will be passing by regularly, they will come back to these areas. Try to stick to the center of trails. Young ticks (nymphs) like dark, moist areas like leaf piles so try to remove those too. Then take a shower.
  • Keep grass short where applicable. Buy a lint roller, the kind with white sticky paper pads. Use it to roll over legs, faces, tail areas and bodies after being in tick areas. You'll be able to see any ticks stuck to the pad!
  • Consider treating the edges of your property with a pyrethrin-based premise spray to add a barrier between ticks and your animals and family. There are services that will come and apply them for you.
  • Inspect your animals by hand, feeling for attached ticks. They'll love the attention and you'll gain piece of mind. Ticks can attach in hard to reach areas like ears, armpits, rear-ends etc. where a lint roller may not reach well.
  • Remove food sources for deer which harbor ticks.
