- Each year, we are diagnosing an increasing number of dogs with Lyme disease at our hospital
- Lyme disease is often debilitating and cannot be cured
- Because ticks can be as small as a poppy seed and easily go undetected, we recommend an annual screening test for tick-borne disease (Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis and Anaplasmosis) for every dog
- Along with year-round tick prevention, we recommend vaccinating against Lyme disease especially for high-risk dogs
