Tick Sickness (Anindilyakwa)

Our Way

Added by Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities

Description This animation, “Tick Sickness” was developed to raise knowledge and awareness of diseases transmitted by ticks, including Ehrlichiosis, a new tick-Borne disease which was first detected in Australia in May 2020.

Ehrlichiosis, which is caused by the bacteria Ehrlichia canis carried by Brown Dog Ticks, can have significant impacts on the health of dogs. While international case reports are rare, there is a possibility that this disease can also impact on human health.
