Articles: Deadly tick fears after dog dies from bite

Contributed by editor on May 04, 2006 - 11:22 PM



A tick which can kill dogs has spread to the British mainland scientists believe.

The disease was diagnosed by a scientist at the University of Bristol following a dog which is walked near to railway lines used by Eurostar trains, died after being bitten by the insect.

The pet, whose owner lives in Ashford, died from the blood-born disease babesia, caused by a tick not previously known to be in the UK.
