Control and prevention Where the dog is

the carrier of ticks, they should wear tick-repellent collars and be inspected regularly to ensure the animal is tick-free. In Australia, Siberia, Mongolia and northern China where rodents and small marsupials are mainly responsible, repellents and insecticide-treated socks and trousers should be worn. Since it takes the tick about 2 h to fully attach itself, it is always a good practice to examine the body carefully after going through tick-infested country. When camping, people should sleep off the ground (e.g. on camp beds) and dogs should be kept away.

Treatment is with tetracycline, doxycycline or chloramphenicol.

Surveillance Make a regular habit of examining the body after walking through countryside.
