Gonna vomit... 1 y.o. ate two blood-filled ticks...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Yes. Yesterday, my one year old son ate a huge, blood-filled tick off the floor while I was in the bathroom. I came in a second later, and he was covered in blood! I panicked, thinking something was horribly wrong... then I found the dead, tooth-marked deflated tick body. :Puke
Today....... same thing happened!!! Ugh!
Should I be worried about weird diseases and stuff? I swear, my house is clean... but my husky ran away last week, and two days later, he came home covered in ticks. We did a flea/tick bath and medication and everything... but they keep on coming! Argh!

I have no advice for you, just sympathy.

The good news is, assuming your Husky is healthy, Baby's not likely to pick anything up from HIM......

The tick, on the other hand, I have no clue.

Call your pediatrician and ask what they suggest? Exposure to blood, albeit dog blood, might need some minor investigation.

Contact your local health dept too. Sometimes ticks can harbor bad stuff.
Good luck
