Hello furries and peeps! We've been away from Blogland for so long, but after visiting only a few blogs today we realise that there's alot of heartache going on and it's mostly been caused by ticks.
There's Digby who has had a very bad reaction to a tick bite........and Petey's HHI friend Lulubelle who has Rocky Mountain Tick Fever. Paws crossed they both make a full recovery, and soon.
Our Mum has a friend who has suspected Lyme disease and she's really suffering with it. This awful disease is caused by being bitten by an infected tick. It is easily treated in it's early stages with antibiotics but in later stages can attack the nervous system and cause all sorts of terrible symptoms.....and all due to a long-forgotten bite from a tiny bloodsucking critter!
Lecture over.....we're off to do more visiting....it's great to have decent service at last!
