Tick season is well and truly underway.

By Janie Goodyer | Dated November 15, 2017

The animals pictured below are just some of the pets that were admitted to Gordon Vet hospital over the past few days as a result of tick paralysis. Tick paralysis treatment is very involved and normally requires the animal to stay in hospital for several days.
Please make sure that your pets are up to date with their tick prevention and remember that NOT all products that protect against fleas protect against ticks. All tick prevention products are slightly different, some need to be given or applied fortnightly, every three weeks or monthly and even 3 monthly. Make sure to read the product label thoroughly to ensure you are using it correctly. If you are unsure what products are suitable, please give Gordon Vet a call on 9498 3000.

Faith is only 7 months old, and was taken to NEVS for tick poisoning, and later transferred to Gordon Vet. She was unable to walk for several days, but gradually regained her strength.

Polly’s family found 5 paralysis ticks on her.
She ended up staying in hospital for 6 days.

Pixie may look a little comical with her tongue hanging out, however this has happened due to laryngeal paralysis. She was on hospital for over a week and unable to eat or drink due to not being able to swallow.

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)
