All About Lyme Disease
The Expert Vet (04-28-2015) #5037: LYME DISEASE — The first step is topical protection like Vectra 3D, then check for ticks after every walk. Get a urine sample looking for protein if you get a Lyme-positive test — and a quantitative blood test to determine whether the level is high but do not simply (mis)use doxycyline! Is the Lyme vaccination a good idea? That depends on your dog’s lifestyle — but if you give it to a dog with a high-positive blood test you can cause fatal kidney disease.
