Lyme Disease

Many people with Lyme disease develop a rash that resembles a "bull's-eye" at the site of the bite within three to thirty days. If this occurs, the disease can be easily diagnosed at an early stage. Below is a picture of one of our adopters’ leg who had Lyme disease.

Symptoms of Lyme disease are more difficult to detect in dogs than in people. The characteristic rash does not develop in dogs. Because the other symptoms of the disease may be delayed or go unrecognized and because the symptoms are similar to those of many other diseases, Lyme disease in animals is often not considered until other diseases have been eliminated.

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted through the bite of a deer tick. Dogs with Lyme disease can exhibit signs of fever, lameness and swollen joints. It is highly recommended that you use monthly flea and tick preventative year around, plus get your dog vaccinated!!

Check out the article the AVMA has on their website, it is very informative.
