Tick free and happy
The poor puppies who were covered in ticks are made up of 4 wee boys and one sister.
The ticks have all fallen off and they’re ok. They need time now, good food and care.
Can you see how the little ginger pup's lower limbs look quite elongated? This is really common in pups that we take in. It's called carpal hyperflexion. More often than not, this is due to a calcium deficiency when Mum hasn't had good food either.
The good thing is that decent food and, when needed, calcium supplements, soon rectify the problem.
Names suggestions please!
Warning - gross video ahead - but how satisfying to see all these dead ticks!?
