'Tick' warning in sacrificial animals

Veterinary Physician Prof. Dr. Mustafa Nizamoğlu, who warned that there may be ticks in sacrificial animals brought from the provinces such as Sivas, Tokat and Yozgat to the sacrificial sales markets in Istanbul, said that it is necessary to wear light-colored and long-sleeved clothes when going to the sacrificial sales places. Prof. Dr. Nizamoğlu, who recommends giving animals to the animals at least 10 days in advance against the tick, said: “Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (KVVKA) takes the disease until death. When you come home after taking the victim, take off your clothes and check for ticks.”

'Tick' warning in sacrificial animals

Veterinary Physician Prof. Dr. Mustafa Nizamoğlu from Istanbul Gelisim University, who lists the precautions to be taken by saying that there may be ticks in the sacrificial animals remaining for the Sacrifice Feast, said, “Ticks are frequently seen in the provinces up to Tokat, Yozgat, Sivas, Gümüşhane, Erzincan and Kars. Pay special attention to the sacrifices brought to animal markets from these provinces. The animals brought from these provinces should be checked by veterinarians before they enter the sacrificial sales markets.”
 
“LOOK AT THE EAR BACKGROUND, SMOKE REGIONS, THE LEGS OF THE ANIMAL”

Stating that the choice of clothes is important, Prof. Dr. Nizamoğlu said, “If the people who will buy the animals take them to their home and look at their garden for a while, they should check or get them ticked. Especially, it can settle in the hairless areas of the animals, in the ears, under the tail and between the legs. In addition, the victims should be careful not to get the tick on them. Because the tick can fall from the animal to the ground and pass from the ground to the people. On the way to the victim sales market, wear light and long-sleeved clothing. If possible, knock your trouser legs into your socks, take off your clothes immediately when you come home, check tick.”
 
TICKS GROW SOAKING BLOOD, AND VOMITS VIRUS INTO THE BODY
 
Nizamoğlu stating that it should not be strived to remove the tick, said: “When the tick comes to the body, it begins to suck blood, at first there is no contagion to the person. When the virus-carrying tick vomits, it infects the person. The tick is small at first, it does not appear. As the blood sucks it becomes large and visible. If you see the tick, go to the health institution as soon as possible, experts need to remove the tick. If there is no intervention to the tick, it vomits 12 hours after settling anywhere in the body. The clock does not matter when you want to manually remove it, the animal stresses and injects the virus into the human.”
 
MEDICATE 10 DAYS BEFORE SLAUGHTERING ANIMAL
Nizamoğlu, who recommended taking the medicine to be given to the animal by asking the veterinarian, said: “If there is 10 days to cut the animal, the medicine can be used to remove the tick. Because antibiotics and parasitic drugs are removed from the body within 4 to 7 days. It is necessary to pay attention to meat and milk. Take the medicine in consultation with the veterinarian. Tick is transmitted to animals from pastures with a lot of bushes. If they do their external parasite medication on time, there is no risk. If this application is made the day before the slaughter, the parasite medicine passes to the human with meat. It is necessary to apply at least 1 week in advance.”
 
MEASURES TO BE TAKEN IN THE SACRIFICIAL MARKETS
 
Emphasizing the attention to the social distance at the victim sales places, Nizamoğlu said: “If they can, they should go sacrificial market with disposable clothing. Due to the pandemic, old bargaining procedures should never be done. Previously, bargaining was done by shaking hands between the seller and the buyer, this method should not be done at all. The tick that carries the virus does not cause any disease in the animal. But when a person gets infected with a fever, it manifests itself with bleeding in certain parts of the body and leads to death.”
 
THINGS TO PAY ATTETION WHILE BUYING SACRIFICIALS
 
Nizamoğlu recommended paying attention to the appearance of the animal while sacrificing, and added: “Their hair should be shiny and smooth, have the animal checked for fever, veterinarians are already looking. The animal must remain alive, without redness in the eyes. Special attention should be paid to the nose of bovine animals that will not come dribble from their mouths, they should be slightly moist. Milk teeth must fall out and must have permanent teeth which means they can become victims.”
