May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month
Lyme disease affects dogs differently and some dogs may not display any clinical signs. In other dogs, symptoms can include limping, swelling in the lymph nodes, fever and lethargy. These signs may not show up until 2-6 months after the dog has contracted the disease. Antibiotics can help treat the disease but do not eliminate the organism. Lyme disease is a recurring condition that can strike again and again.
You can help protect your dog by having him vaccinated with Lyme vaccine, which helps block the transmission of the spirochete that causes Lyme disease and by monthly dosing with a proven tick control product either by topical application or oral administration.
Please call our office to discuss the risk of Lyme disease for your dog and for recommendations on the prevention of this scary disease.
