I had a dog come down with Ehrlich close to a decade ago and vet back then said all the tick carried crap was rising up from the south. I've talked to several houndsmen from the east that have lost dogs to one type or the other jist in the last few years as it becomes a bigger threat. My brother was diagnosed with the Rocky Mountain Tick Fever last week, MidMo, said he things it happened while at my nephew's ball practice because he hasn't been hunting. I treat heavy with permethrin and Taurus (flinopril; for the dogs) but the mild winter has the ticks in zombie mode; probably pick 40 a night off me (most before they bite) and still pull some off the treated hounds. I keep an eye on the dogs and watch for loss of appetite and limping.

It makes you think, how long has this stuff been around and misdiagnosed? I heard some good perspectives on the tick explosions:
1) deer population explosion, most of the US has seen a huge upswing in deer population...thanks to us . Obviously deer are very mobile so easy to spread ticks across the landscape
2) smaller parcels - more and more parcels are getting broken down into smaller chunks, so large scale burns are happening less and less.
3) global warming - obviously warmer winters = less tick kill. I actually read that droughts are much harder on ticks than long periods of freeze
