Two of my cats have been bitten by ticks one was small the other was quite large. What are the sypthoms I have to watch for? I was bitten by one and know for a human but not for animals. What can they cause in the animals? First one removed with tweezer all out second with veg. oil and tweezers and left a good size hole in her neck but is healing.
Cats rarely contract tick borne dz. One dz transmitted by ticks is Cytauxzoonosis. Clinical signs include, depression, anorexia, fever, icterus, dehydration, and hpothermia. Infection is most common in the south central and southeastern U.S. Thanks, vetcare
