The diagnosis seemed like a long shot - and yet turned out to be 100 percent correct.
Even though the vets suspected his recovery would take a few days, within 10 hours Ollie was up and roaming around his house, almost completely back to his old self. His parents were thrilled, and took Ollie back to Dr. Stone the next day to show off his progress.
Ollie spends a lot of time outdoors and is therefore susceptible to ticks, but his parents did take precautions to protect him. "Ollie was, in fact, wearing a tick collar when he went camping a few weeks prior to his paralysis," Buller said. "But the tick still managed to find its way into Ollie's fur!"
From now on, Ollie parents will take multiple measures to protect him from ticks. Thanks to the quick thinking of the vets at DoveLewis, Ollie is completely healed now, and has many more camping trips and adventures ahead of him.
