Food allergy and a link to ticks?
« on: July 28, 2013, 02:03:45 PM »
Just when you thought you couldn't hate ticks more. Not only can people get an allergy to red meat, so too can dogs (end of the article)

I think Beas might have this because about a month ago he started breaking out in hives and scratching himself raw. We are now switching his food over to duck to see if that helps.

Good grief! What next? I see on the map, the ticks are beginning to move into Wisconsin. :wreck:

I hope the duck formula works for Beas! :fingerscrossed:

Intresting. I hope I never get bit by a tick carrying this. I would hate to give up red meat.
Hope Bees feels better!

Apparently not everyone gets it. I pray that I never get it. My job involves walking and sometimes literally crawling through all sorts of tick infested areas. If I got this I would cry. (My boss has it)
