It's that dreaded tick season again and apart from being vigilant, I don't know how to prevent my horse being a walking target - however does anyone know if a sore looking patch from a tick bite is necessarily an indication that it will turn into full blown 'Piroplasmose"??
I called the vet this morning and he just says to 'keep an eye' on him - but last year the same thing happened and it took days before it became apparent that he had the infection in his blood - we nearly lost him! I do understand that we can't anti-dote them 'just in case' but the wondering and waiting drives me mad!!
