Abby the Aussie and Lyme Disease

Beware of lyme disease in your dog. Abby contracted it in south-central Penna.  several years ago and it went undiagnosed by two vets.  She kept coming up lame and I was told that she had arthritis in her back legs, although she was relatively young. Because nobody tested her for lyme, she ended up with permanent joint damage similar to the effects of arthritis and requires medication daily. Just ask the vet to do a routine lyme test because obvious symptoms might not show up for a long time after the tick bite.  I would not want any other dog to go through what Abby goes through every day. Here is some good info I found…Lyme Disease Borreliosis in Dogs.
